Dr. Samuel Mungai was interviewed and found fit to be promoted to an Associate Professor in Information Technology , Department of Information Technology , the School of Computing and Informatics Kibabii University.
He has PhD from Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology and is a Chartered Engineer. He joined Kibabii University in 2013 from Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology where he was serving as a lecturer. He has been serving as the Director of Information Communication Technology and as a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Information Technology, School of Computing and Informatics, Kibabii University.
His area of research is Software Engineering. He developed a model on the three internal software attributes and attackability. The relationship on coupling and attackability had earlier been defined, so he advanced this to include the other two internal attributes and developed technical metrics for each of the attributes working alone and when the three (attributes) are working concurrently.
It had also earlier been established that seven human attributes that is Kindness, Dishonesty, Social Compliance, Time pressure, Herd mentality, Greed/need could be used by social engineers in attacking software systems. He modelled these attributes into a probabilistic model and derived social atackability metrics.
He later combined the technical attackability model and social attackability model into holistic predictive attackability model and associated metrics.
As the Director ICT, he has been key in automation of services in the University. The Key automation being the implementation of Enterprise resources Planning (ERP) with University.
