Post Graduate Cyber Security (PGCS) symposium

  This first international symposium on Post Graduate Cyber Security (PGCS) will bring together postgraduate research students working in cybersecurity areas. It is a forum for early researchers to present and discuss their research alongside guest speakers from academia and industry. The PGCS symposium will be held in parallel with International Conference of Big Data in Cyber Security which is hosted by The Cyber Academy in collaboration with HP and ISACA.
Having the PGCS symposium held in parallel with the above event, will assist young researchers to understand the demands for cybersecurity in different organisations. PGCS symposium provides an exchange between postgraduate research students and leading industrial experts. We hope that the students will engage with industrial contacts for future partnerships and research-based
industrial collaborations.
Cybersecurity courses are being taught in many universities all across Scotland including Edinburgh Napier University, University of Glasgow, Glasgow Caledonian University, University of West of Scotland and Edinburgh University. PGCS not only connects postgraduate research students to leading industrial expertise but also provides for greater collaboration amongst Scottish universities themselves and leading industries. The low cost of the PGCS symposium makes it an
ideal and affordable home-based conference for post graduate cybersecurity students all across Scotland.
