Cyber Security is considered a Tier 1 threat to National Security and the UK Government is investing heavily in this area with a particular focus on research and development.
Scotland has world recognised expertise in this area and we are continuing to build on this. SICSA possesses combined expertise and facilities in the field of Cyber Security and works with Industry; Police; Scottish and UK Government; and other agencies to make Scotland the number one place for Cyber Security engagement and research.
In November 2017, SICSA launched the SICSA Cyber Nexus, which aims to establish a coherent and vibrant Scottish Cyber Security and Resilience innovation community; linking academia, business, government, the public sector and the third sector. The SICSA Cyber Nexus will deliver a range of funding and events across Scotland, including Workshops; Conferences; Summer Schools; Innovation Projects; Distinguished Visitor Fellowships; Industrial Fellowships; and a Researcher Exchange Programme.
