"Welcome to the Cybersecurity Research Centre here at Lancaster University. We are a rich vibrant community of multidisciplinary researchers passionate about driving the development of solutions to the challenges of modern digital life. As a well-established multidisciplinary community, we naturally approach cyber security problems in a disruptive and innovative way.
Our focus on socio-technical systems research enables us to take a broader view of where the cyber security challenges are and where the solutions may be found. We have great strength in applied and practical research and we often tell people that we like to ‘build what we study, and study what we build’. It is these three foundational elements – Multidisciplinary Approach, Socio-Technical Systems Research & Real World Applicability – that enables us to undertake disruptive, innovative research with considerable, internationally recognised, socio-economic impact.
We recognise, however, we cannot do this work on our own. We must combine our expertise with that of our innovation partners, in order to tackle key cybersecurity problems. As a community, we pride ourselves on how we engage with everyone from industry through to government; influencing everything from policy to product innovation.
By working with the most innovative organisations we are able to help organisations to grow, adapt and protect themselves, increasing prosperity for all. We want to work with you to help keep our global society safe."
