News: Call for PhD Applications in Cyber Security (deadline extended to 31st May, 2018)

The Kent Interdisciplinary Research Centre in Cyber Security (KirCCS) at the University of Kent harnesses expertise across the University to address current and potential cyber security challenges.

Its strategic objective is to promote wide-ranging multidisciplinary research, and to teach and develop skills in cyber security to its students and the wider community, through degree programmes, workshops, visits, lectures and training.

Included in its remit is to work with external organisations to promote cyber security.

We have an external-facing mailing list to inform non-Kent people and organisations who are interested in hearing about news, events and other public announcements from the Centre. If you are interested in subscribing to it, send an email to cyber-external-request@kent.ac.uk with a brief introduction to yourself (and your employer if that is relevant).
