Ciaran Martin, the head of the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), part of Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), has visited Cardiff University. It’s one of the UK’s Academic Centres of Excellence in Cyber Security Research recognised by NCSC.
Accredited as an ‘ACE’ university, Cardiff can better feed research into UK Government for national cyber resilience.
Pete Burnap, Professor of Data Science and Cybersecurity and head of the ACE, said: “We are delighted Ciaran and colleagues from the NCSC have taken the time to visit Cardiff University. With a core focus on cyber security analytics, we have been able to present our innovative research on the development of artificial intelligence to detect and stop cyber attacks.
“It has also been an opportunity to showcase our work with industry partners such as Airbus, and how we are working collaboratively to turn cutting edge research into real-world security solutions. As a Centre of Excellence, the University nurtures young talent and fosters a pipeline of ‘next generation’ cyber security professionals, providing much-needed software engineers, data scientists and cyber security specialists.”
Mr Martin and Paul Chichester, Director of Operations for the NCSC, were there to see the work in practice, and meet researchers and students.
