The University of Surrey has been recognised for its world-leading innovation in the field of cyber security.

It has been named Cyber University of the Year at the National Cyber Awards 2023.

 Ambrose Neville, the University of Surrey’s head of Information Security, and Prof Helen Treharne from Surrey’s Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Education and head of School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering.

The university says the  awards  celebrate excellence and innovation in the UK’s cyber security sector across academia, defence, policing and industry and recognise individuals and institutions who are committed to cyber innovation, cybercrime reduction and protecting citizens online.

The president and vice-chancellor at the University of Surrey, Professor Max Lu, said: “I’m delighted to congratulate colleagues at our Surrey Centre for Cyber Security.

“Tackling security threats is more relevant now than ever before, and University of Surrey is proud to be playing a leading role.”

Surrey is one of only seven UK universities to be recognised by the government’s National Cyber Security Centre as both an  Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research  and in  Cyber Security Education

The university says it is also a sector leader in successful organisational cyber risk management, evidenced by external benchmarks such as its Bitsight Security Performance Rating, which, it adds, “is the best of any top-30 UK university in the 2023 Times Higher Education rankings”.

    And I wonder how much of the University’s brilliant research has made its way rapidly to China?
