The Business of the Institute
The business of the Institute embraces security policy, security threat analysis, and security solutions. Based on a strong technical foundation, it expands to encompass technical, social, and policy means to counter cyber security threats.
The business is undertaken as client funded projects with defined deliverables and an IPR model, for single clients and consortia, using experts from a variety of fields within the research community who have interest, capability and capacity to deliver.
The Institute provides an environment to bring together influencers and creators of cyber security to identify pressing problems and opportunities, to provide a broad research community with which to engage and resource projects, to be a place to further understanding and influence and to broker pairings of expertise with needs.
The Institute commissions and disseminates white papers, facilitates technical and regulatory theme specific technology and policy briefings, organises workshops and networking and briefing events, and facilitates product reviews and assessments.
It is intended that the Institute will provide a fund and facilities for incubating promising start-up companies, and tenant facilities for cyber security initiatives.
The Institute will establish a professional development programme that will include client bespoke courses.
