Core competencies

CSIT is a £30M innovation and knowledge centre based at Queens University Belfast. With over 50
researcher staff in information and physical security, it is the UK’s largest academic related research
centre in cyber security. CSIT brings together research specialists in complementary fields including
data and network security systems, wireless enabled security systems and intelligent surveillance
systems.

Research at CSIT targets the development of secure solutions to a number of particularly modern
problems, including the protection of mobile phone networks, guaranteeing privacy over unsecure
networks for connected healthcare and the creation of secure corridors for the seamless and rapid
transit of people. CSIT has evolved from a number of well established, technology driven research
clusters in signal, video, data, network and security processing systems at Queen’s University
Belfast.
