Helen Sharp, Professor of Software Engineering takes us behind the scenes in the OU’s IT department to talk about her research into software development. She works with industry partners to identify some of the challenges in software design, both for the software developers and end users.

Arosha Bandara and his colleagues work in cyber security and human behaviour - investigating ways of building security and privacy into the systems that are an integral part of our everyday lives. He demonstrates the Privacy Band, a device developed at the OU to help people manage their privacy more effectively in a world that combines cyber-physical-social systems.
