The University of Southampton will play a leading role as part of a new consortium confronting emerging cyber security challenges in the UK.

Professor Vladimiro Sassone, director of Southampton’s Cyber Security Academy, has taken up a role in the new security, privacy, identity and trust engagement network (SPRITE+) which will launch September 2019.

It will harness outstanding UK research expertise in security, privacy, identity and trust over the next four years as it addresses priority challenges set by academic, business and industry, government and civil stakeholders. The network, led by the University of Manchester, has been awarded £1.7 million funding by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.

The University of Southampton is building the next generation of cyber security leaders through MEng in Computer Science with Cyber Security and MSc in Cyber Security degree programmes.
