Welcome to Security Lancaster

As an umbrella of Lancaster’s Cyber Security activities, the Lancaster Security Institute (SL) targets the broad spectrum of "useful and usable" Cyber Security with a unique "systems" perspective. SL’s cross-disciplinary socio-technical research is actively complemented by policy engagement and education to deliver innovative solutions to today’s complex security challenges that affect people and societies.

The SL centres, namely a) SL Centre for Assured Autonomy, b) SL Centre for Secure Publics, c) SL Centre for Secure Systems, and d) Centre for Secure Analytics, reflect the current themes pursued by the SL. These represent a comprehensive coverage of both technical and societal aspects of Cyber Security in addition to addressing legal and policy aspects across a multitude of application domains. The SL coverage includes highlight activities such as UKRI , , , NCSC ACE-CSE and ACE-CSR, EC & , ERC H-unique, PETRAS , GM/Lancashire Cyber Foundries, the upcoming and GCHQ DISH in addition to industry-sponsored projects.
