Welcome to Security Lancaster
As an umbrella of Lancaster’s Cyber Security activities, the Lancaster Security Institute (SL) targets the broad spectrum of "useful and usable" Cyber Security with a unique data-centric socio-technical "systems" perspective.
The 4 Centers within SL (SL Center for Assured Autonomy, SL Center for Secure Publics, SL Center for Secure Systems, and Center for Secure Analytics) reflect the current research themes pursued by the institute. These represent a unique coverage of both technical and societal aspects of Cyber Security covering software, system, network, and behavioral/sociological threats in addition to addressing legal and policy aspects across a multitude of application domains. The SL coverage includes highlight activities such as UKRI TAS-S, CREST, SPRITE+, NCSC ACE-CSE and ACE-CSR, EC CONCORDIA & SANCUS, ERC H-unique, PETRAS HIPSTER, GM/Lancashire Cyber Foundries, the upcoming GCHQ DISH in addition to industry sponsored projects.
Our emergent research targets Secure ML, technology-invariant data integrity, quantifiable/composable security alongside an upcoming community-accessible threats data repository TIDE-H (Threat Intelligence Data Exchange Hub).
Security Lancaster delivers research that innovates and creatively challenges the way that individuals, organisations and societies secure and protect themselves. Our approach delivers the very best use-inspired and pure research that delivers real impact.
We achieve our world-class research and educational achievements through engagement and collaboration with companies from a range of sectors, national governments, think tanks and other organisations with an interest in security and protection science.
Lancaster University has been recognised as an Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Education (ACE-CSE) by the UK's National Cyber Security Centre. Our Gold award is based on the quality of existing cyber security courses - in particular the MSc in Cyber Security - and a multi-disciplinary approach to the subject area. We have ambitious plans for the future, including offering additional programmes at Bachelor's and Master's levels and enhancing cyber awareness more broadly across the university’s staff and student population.
