Software Reliability and Cyber Security will be the twin areas of focus for City University London's Cyber Security Seminar on 11th June. The Seminar will provide an opportunity for anyone interested in information security to find out more about research and education taking place in City's Centres for Software Reliability and Cyber Security Sciences.

The event, which begins at 6pm in the Geary Lecture Theatre, will feature a keynote lecture from Chris Ensor, deputy director for the National Technical Authority for Information Assurance at the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). Mr Ensor's presentation is titled "Cyber Security on the Frontline", which will be followed by a research talk, "Analysis of Android Malware", given by City Cyber Security Professor, Professor Tom Chen.

In the coming academic year 2014/15, City will be launching new postgraduate degrees in Cyber Security and Data Science. These will complement the MSc in Management in Information Security and Risk which has been running successfully since 2012.

nullSenior Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science, Dr Ilir Gashi, says the Cyber Security Seminar provides valuable exposure for City:

"Guests coming to next week's Cyber Security Seminar will get to know more about the increasingly critical nature of threats to cyber space. We are pleased that the impact of City's research and education in this challenging domain is already being felt and that we are making a valuable contribution."
