Security and risk
Globalisation brings many benefits and an almost unlimited amount of security challenges.
Under the leadership of Dr Peter Lee, our Security and Risk research concerns the physical and electronic security of individuals, organisations and societies.
Whatever the risk – from food safety and security to military drone use – tackling security threats demands analysis and intervention.
