Industry, Government and Academia come together to mark the opening of the Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security

Posted on 19/12/2013

To mark the opening of Royal Holloway's Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security, a launch event was held on the 26th November 2013 with the presence of industry experts, leading academics and government. Following the establishment of the CDT in April 2013, and the start of the first students in October, this informal event was an opportunity for some of the CDT industrial partners and sponsors to learn more about the CDT activities and meet the students in the 2013/14 cohort.

The event started with lunch, followed by a brief presentation from Dr Carlos Cid, the CDT Director, and an introduction to this year's cohort, delivered by the students themselves. The event also had presentations from Dr Igor Muttik, from McAfee, and from Prof Paul Hogg, VicePrincipal and Dean of Science, who spoke about importance of the establishment of the CDTs in Cyber Security and similar initiatives, from the industry and academic perspectives. The event was well-attended, with over 40 participants,and a great occasion for networking among CDT staff, students and partners from industry and government.

The establishment of Royal Holloway's Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security is one of a number of recent initiatives supported by the UK Government as part of the UK Cyber Security Strategy, and will provide multidisciplinary training to three successive annual cohorts of around 10 students each, starting in 2013. Applications are currently open for a new cohort of CDT students to start in October 2014.
