Profile Information

The Centre for Cyber Security (CCS) at Huddersfield aims to develop and demonstrate advanced knowledge beneficial to understanding and mitigating cyber threats.

Headed by Dr Simon Parkinson, the CCS at the University of Huddersfield has world-leading expertise in the analysis of cyber security vulnerabilities, as well as developing mitigation techniques. One key focus of the group is in the development and use of intelligent cyber security mechanisms, particularly those involving the use of Artificial Intelligence.

We work closely with industrial and academic partners to ensure that our research provides maximum benefit to technology users, from large SMEs to public citizens.
