Northern Irish research centre bags award

Northern Irish research centre bags award

An esteemed academic honour has been bestowed upon Queen’s University’s Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT), a cyber security research institution in Belfast.

The centre has been presented with a Queen’s Anniversary Prize for higher and further education.

The Royal Anniversary Trust, which organises the prizes, will be presented by Her Majesty the Queen on a night that will pay tribute to exceptional academic  work.

With a staff of around 90, it ranks among the largest research centres for cyber security in the UK. It develops technology designed to prevent cyber fraud, strengthen anti-virus programmes and ensure financial transaction security.

CSIT also offers numerous postgraduate courses in cyber security.

Prof. Patrick Johnston, vice-chancellor for Queen’s University, appreciated the acknowledgement but focused more on cyber security and the challenge it presents to the world.

He said:

“The need for strong and resilient cyber security technologies has never been greater. CSIT is home to some of the world’s foremost cyber security experts.

“It is, and will continue to be, at the forefront of efforts to protect the UK from cyber attacks and to maintain the public’s trust that their online privacy and data is kept safe.”

 

The UK needs all the help it can get when it comes to cyber security and all the signs are that Prof. Johnson is right when it comes to the challenge we face both as a nation and globally. Businesses also need to play their part and offer cyber security jobs to personnel trained in preventing cyber attacks.
