The Bristol Security Centre is an Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research. The Centre is one of eight such centres set up in collaboration between EPSRC and GCHQ. The centres have been introduced to increase the number of top quality graduates in the field of cyber security, ultimately aiming to build a skills base able to make the UK one of the most secure places in the world to do business online.
