Cyber Security Research Group

The Cyber Security Research Group (CSRG) is a multidisciplinary research group based at the Centre for Science & Security Studies, King’s College London, run by Dr Tim Stevens. Since autumn 2017, it has promoted research into cyber security by bringing together experts with backgrounds in International Relations, security studies, strategic studies, intelligence studies, public policy, computer science and digital humanities. Many of our members are also part of the KCL Cybersecurity Centre, an EPSRC-NCSC Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research (ACE-CSR).

Cyber security is a key concern for societies reliant on networked information infrastructures for a broad spectrum of social, economic and political activities. Threats to the integrity and functionality of these systems are many, varied and dynamic, as are the ways they may be compromised or leveraged by adversaries criminal or political. The CSRG exists to consider the nature and character of these threats and to formulate appropriate ways of thinking and doing cyber security in the service of society.

The CSRG is an intellectual hub for the study of a wide range of issues in cyber security and allied fields, including cyberwar and cyberwarfare, national and military cyber strategy, critical infrastructure protection, information security, information warfare, digital surveillance, cybercrime and cyberespionage. We encourage innovation in theory, concepts and methods and apply these to contemporary problems of cyber security, whilst stimulating discussion and engagement across academia, government, enterprise, defence and security agencies, media and the general public.

CSRG members are involved in diverse projects relating to cyber security, including cybersecurity policy, cyber strategy, cyber deterrence, global cyber governance, cyber conflict, information warfare and a host of technical computer security issues.
