A global innovation hub

From the outset, CSIT has had two main aims.

The first has been to undertake research of the highest international quality in the field of cyber security, a major societal challenge. The second has been to establish CSIT as a Global Innovation Hub consistent with its role as the UK’s Innovation and Knowledge Centre in this area.
