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).
