New Technology Lecture Series looks at Cybersecurity
The University of Bradford launches its new Cantor Technology lecture series with a talk exploring the future of cybersecurity.
The annual lecture, which has been initiated by Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Brian Cantor, will seek to provide a forum for academics, students, experts in their fields and the public, to discuss areas of work within the University and their relation to society.
The first of the Cantor Technology Lecture Series is titled ‘Cybersecurity futures: the ultimate human-technology challenge?’ The talk will take place on Tuesday, 30 June, 6 -7.30pm and will be delivered by Professor Sadie Creese, a world leading expert on this subject, from the University of Oxford.
The lecture will explore what cybersecurity is and why it matters to society and humanity more broadly. It will give an overview of cyber-attacks, who conducts them, the harm resulting and current approaches to prevention, detection and response. It will also talk about the future of cybersecurity, the challenges and resources needed to keep pace and address them.
Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bradford, Professor Brian Cantor, said: “The University is going through an exciting period of development, establishing itself as one of the world’s great technology universities. As part of this, we have a duty to use our strengths to maximum value for society and we strive to do this through our research and application of knowledge.
“I’m pleased to be able to launch this new lecture series and look forward to welcoming expert speakers, including Professor Creese, to the University.”
