GCHQ research institute tackles cyber terrorism
STAFF from GCHQ have helped set up a new research institute to look at the growing threat of cyber terrorists.
Established by the Cheltenham-based listening post in partnership with the Research Councils' Global Uncertainties Programme (RCUK), the research institute is a virtual organisation involving seven universities.
The institute, based at University College London, is being funded by a £3.8 million grant.
It will allow leading academics in the field of cyber security, including social scientists, mathematicians and computer scientists from across the UK, to work together.
