A global delegation of high-level researchers and influential business people have been in Belfast to hear about ways to improve cyber security.

The third annual World Cyber Security Technology Research Summit was hosted by Queen's University of Belfast's Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT) in the Northern Ireland Science Park.

CSIT is the UK's largest university centre for cyber security research, a rapidly growing field with vast global potential.

Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster said the conference presents an opportunity to place Northern Ireland firmly on the international cyber security map.

In 2011, she announced £4.4m of Invest NI support for CSIT.
