Crime and terrorism are constantly evolving threats. National infrastructures such as transport, power and communications need to remain protected, and identity theft and credit card fraud continue to have a devastating impact on everyday life. UCL SECReT will produce the next generation of security scientists who will be ready for these challenges.

“UCL’s Security Science DTC will train and shape a generation of thought leaders in integrated and socially sensitive security; this will encompass not only future academics but also the policy makers and industrialists with whom they interact during and after their training. We aim to transform the way security is done.”
