The York Interdisciplinary Centre for Cyber Security brings together expertise across the University of York and internationally to address current and potential cyber security challenges.
We work across several areas but have a particular focus on the Internet of Things, blockchain, cryptographic protocols, quantum and post-quantum cryptography, homomorphic machine learning, cyber security in politics and law, mathematics behind cyber security, and data analysis for encrypted medical data.
Cyber security challenges are complex and multidisciplinary by nature, and solving them requires input from a range of disciplines in the physical sciences, social sciences and law. The real-world problems that we focus on have significant implications for economics, health and national security and at York we're ideally placed to bring together a wide range of expertise to meet both current and future challenges.
