Surrey Centre for Cyber Security
SCCS was established by the University of Surrey to consolidate and organise its cyber security activities across the University. SCCS is one of the 17 Academic Centres of Excellence in Cyber Security Research (ACEs-CSR) recognised by the UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) in partnership with the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
The exponential growth of computer technology has revolutionised the way we do business, organise our lives and interact socially – but has also brought new and ever-growing challenges in terms of security.
