£25m cyber security research centre launches
A new UK cyber security centre has been launched to create technology which could prove key in battling the bad guys.
A new, 25 million cyber security research centre was unveiled today in Northern Ireland.
The Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT) will be based at Queen's University in Belfast, and is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
CSIT said it would focus on converged security' the use of IT systems to improve physical security, while protecting the systems themselves so they can't be hacked.
The centre's research projects will include the development of processors that could analyse internet traffic in real time, and CCTV analysis technology that could reduce crime on public transport.
"Our starting points are mission-driven projects for which we have identified end goals. CSIT also has a strong entrepreneurial ethos," said CSIT principle investigator John McCanny, in a statement.
"We're confident that we'll be able to fast-track the development of marketable applications of our technologies to the benefit of UK industry and the wider economy."
