Kent Cyber Security Educational Centre (KeCSEC)

Director: Dr Virginia Franqueira

The educational activities of iCSS are coordinated by Kent Cyber Security Educational Centre (KeCSEC). KeCSEC was set up in 2021 to coordinate university wide teaching activities around cyber security.

The centre coordinates educational activities related to cyber security, not only at the level of the School of Computing, but across the University of Kent as a whole. Those activities include (but are not limited to) outreach, internal engagement with students on cyber-related topics, external engagement, and cyber-related training and awareness campaigns for students and staff.

The centre is also involved in setting up and maintaining a pool of cyber-related modules across different schools and new cyber-related interdisciplinary degree programmes.

KeCSEC aims to raise awareness and promote interdisciplinary dialogue about the numerous facets of cyber security, therefore, enriching students' experience. I am trilled to be leading the centre supported by my colleagues, and endorsed by the University's senior management team.
