Target Audience

Businesses, academics and government individuals with an interest in cyber security and working collabratively.


In an increasingly digital and connected world, cyber security is becoming ever more important. From connected cars, planes, buildings, cities, and even animals, software is everywhere and how we live, behave and interact with the world around us is changing.

As organisations adapt, developing and adopting technologies related to big data, cognitive computing and the Internet of Things (IoT), cyberthreats are growing in both volume and complexity. Smart companies no longer see cybersecurity as a function of the IT department, but rather a core element to be integrated into their systems.

Please join Cardiff University and Airbus as they outline some of the key research areas and developments in cyber security. The launch will include presentations by key representatives from academia, business and government and will be an opportunity to find out how working together Wales can be positioned as a global force in emerging cyber security themes.

Opportunities for engagement for both business and academia will be explored and the centre labs will be open for the first time for guided tours and demonstrations.
