SPYDERISK is a spinout from the IT Innovation Centre led by Stephen Phillips based on research led by Mike Surridge. The SPYDERISK system modeller performs an automated cyber-security risk assessment, analysing a model of a company’s information system created through a drag and drop interface.

The RSG contributed feature development in Java, mainly focused on user authentication, as well as performance optimisation of triplestore queries used for model updates, including a 10x speedup in asset deletion time for large models.
