Cyber Security Centre

As our manufactured environment becomes ever more dependent upon digital systems, cyber security is headline news. However, this is not just because of the challenges involved in protecting the internet. Vehicle control systems, building management systems, smart city infrastructure, industrial control and medical devices all exist within the cyber domain. WMG's Cyber Security Centre (CSC) conducts research into the nature of the cyber environment and the protection of the human experience within it, focusing on delivering transformative solutions for governments and industry, and for individuals and communities, regionally, nationally and globally.

WMG's Cyber Security Centre aims to demonstrably advance knowledge of the cyber environment and to protect the human experience within it. This is being delivered through:

  • World class education programmes in cyber security and related disciplines for the benefit of current and future industry leaders. Education >>
  • Innovative multi-disciplinary research, focusing on transformative solutions for governments, industry and society. Research >>
