Queen's University Belfast's Centre for Secure Information Technologies has hosted the ninth Annual World Cyber Security Summit.

The event brought businesses, researchers and industry leaders from around the world to QUB's Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology.

The summit, which took place yesterday and on Wednesday, heard that the cyber security industry in Northern Ireland was on course to generate salaries worth more than £70m each year.

The sector also employs almost 1,700 people.
