Postgrad open day: public lectures examine our security

Published: Wed 8 Mar 2017

How safe is the world in 2017?

It is a question that affects us all and is the subject of two public lectures at the University of Bradford that will share expert insight on contemporary politics and world events.

Cybercrime – can we ever really be safe? And Brexit, UN, Trump Administration and the significance for European and International Security both take place on Thursday 16 March 2017 in the John Stanley Bell lecture theatre at the city centre campus . The lectures are part of the University’s postgraduate open day. Registration is free.

Cybercrime is one of the most important and complex issues that we currently face. Whether as an individual or an organisation we have information we need to protect. It is a complex issue and although technology plays a big part in protecting systems, it is becoming widely recognised that the human element can often be the biggest vulnerability. Delivering the lecture from 4pm – 5.30pm will be Dr Andrea Cullen, Director of Cyber Security Interdisciplinary Centre, and Lorna Armitage, Programme Leader for BSc Computer Science for Cyber Security

The victory of Donald Trump in the US presidential elections was a shock to much of the US political establishment and also internationally. This public lecture will consider the international conflict and security challenges, risks and opportunities in the context of Brexit and Trump. The lecture, from 6pm – 7.30pm, will be delivered by Professor Owen Greene, Professor of International Security and Development.

The postgraduate open day takes place from 3pm – 6pm on Thursday 16 March 2017 and is aimed at those interested in Master's or research degrees, or continuing professional development courses. It will show how the University’s flexible range of postgraduate courses can transform prospects, and develop people both personally and professionally.

Academics and admissions staff will be on hand to discuss ideal programmes of study and how to apply. The open day will have a postgraduate funding session, and will also feature tours of the labs, study areas and studios that postgraduates use as part of their studies.
