The PETRAS National Centre of Excellence for IoT Systems Cybersecurity is delighted to announce our next online PETRAS Securing the Future: Knowledge Exchange and Networking event on 25 November 10.30am-3.00pm.  

PETRAS convenes social and technical academic experts with the public and private sectors to consider issues of Privacy, Ethics, Trust, Reliability, Acceptability and Security as they apply to IoT systems and networks.

Our research ultimately aims to benefit society and support the UK economy, by informing local and central government policies and creating technical and methodological solutions that enable businesses to adopt IoT systems and networks, safely and securely.
