About us

Founders clock towerThe Information Security Group (ISG) at Royal Holloway, University of London, is a world-leading interdisciplinary research group dedicated to research and education in the area of information (cyber) security.

The ISG contains more than fifteen full-time academic faculty members, including a mixture of computer scientists, mathematicians and social scientists. These are supported by several research assistants and a large number of research students, making the ISG one of the largest academic information security teams in the world.

The ISG was formed in 1990 with the intent of providing an academic institution which understood and collaborated with government and industry in the area of information security. 

The ISG retains its close links with industry, through collaborations with industry security professionals, a strong history of consultancy, and an extensive international MSc alumni community. You are welcome to read a short history of the ISG. We also produce an annual ISG Review Newsletter.
