Speaking on the particular importance of cyber security for UCL, UCL President & Provost, Dr Spence, said: "We aim to strike a balance between fostering an open, creative culture, which is essential for a university like ours, and ensuring the security of the data entrusted to us by our communities. This calls for vigilance without unnecessary alarm and a collective commitment to cybersecurity, all while cherishing the openness that makes our university unique."
