As our manufactured environment becomes ever more dependent upon digital systems, cyber security is headline news. However, this is not just because of the challenges involved in protecting the internet. Vehicle control systems, building management systems, smart city infrastructure, industrial control and medical devices all exist within the cyber domain. WMG's Cyber Security Centre (CSC) conducts research into the nature of the cyber environment and the protection of the human experience within it, focusing on delivering transformative solutions for governments and industry, and for individuals and communities, regionally, nationally and globally.
WMG's Cyber Security Centre aims to demonstrably advance knowledge of the cyber environment and to protect the human experience within it. This is being delivered through:
- World class education programmes in cyber security and related disciplines for the benefit of current and future industry leaders. Education >>
- Innovative multi-disciplinary research, focusing on transformative solutions for governments, industry and society. Research >>

- E-CRIME (European Commission) - A collaborative European project aimed at addressing the issues around cybercrime within non-ICT sectors such as health, energy, finance and transport. The project will offer measures of the economic impact and develop concrete measures to manage and deter cybercrime. The approach is inter-disciplinary and end-user focused. More information>>
- Detecting and Preventing Mass Marketing Fraud (MMF) - The EPSRC-funded DAPM project will develop novel techniques to detect and prevent online mass marketing fraud (MMF), a major and growing problem that generates significant social anxiety and psychological impact. Through a multi-disciplinary approach and close focus on co-designing solutions collaboratively and testing them 'in the wild', the project will generate not only new scientific understanding of the anatomy of MMF, but also tools and techniques that can form the basis of practical interventions in tackling such fraud.
