Queen's in cyber security link-up

Queen's University Belfast will soon be working in partnership with one of the world's biggest technology companies to combat global cyber security threats.

The university's Secure Information Technologies (CSIT) department, one of UK's largest university cyber security research labs, will work closely with Infosys to combat malware, security of mobile and cloud infrastructures, and privacy issues for financial markets.

Senior vice president of Infosys Labs and Products Research & Development, Subu Goparaju, said the growing demand for cyber security has prompted the joint venture.

"The rise of cloud and mobility solutions has only increased the need for greater cyber security. This is a top concern we hear from executives around the globe. Our partnership with Queen's University will provide Infosys with insights into cyber-crimes and access to the important work being done at CSIT," he explained.
