THE UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH LEADS THE WAY IN CYBER SECURITY
Cyber security is now a matter of global concern. Having recently become a Government-approved Centre for Excellence for Security Research, the University of Edinburgh is pioneering the field. Announced as part of the Government’s National Cyber Security Strategy last year, the University of Edinburgh will work with centres throughout the UK to develop the latest cyber security in order to ensure the UK remains one of the most secure places in the world to do business in cyberspace.
Edinburgh is just one of 14 universities to receive this recognition, chosen from 20 applicants and write my essay works. The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) will work with the University over the next five years to grow academia’s understanding of cyber security.
EDINBURGH RANKED SECOND IN THE WORLD FOR QUALITY OF LIFE
A study published by Deutsche Bank examined prices across 47 cities, looking at everything from healthcare satisfaction to salaries, and recently announced that Edinburgh was ranked as second. Edinburgh’s low commuting time and accessible healthcare contributed to its high ranking, only being beaten by Wellington, New Zealand. Larger cities, such as Tokyo, New York and Paris, ranked very low due to higher living costs, pollution and high commuting times.
The report said: “[Edinburgh] is a consistent all rounder. Decent opportunities, average costs but less stressful living/working conditions … There is no perfect way of calculating this but we wanted to stimulate debate and highlight how cities rank on subjective quality-of-life variables.”
BEIJING CAPITAL INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT AND EDINBURGH AIRPORT ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP
Edinburgh Airport and Beijing Capital International Airport have signed a partnership agreement which aims to develop and forge co-operation between the two airports. Both agreed to share an understanding of each other’s markets and to share operational and commercial opportunities.
The partnership follows a visit by Edinburgh Airport Chief Executive, Gordon Dewar, to the Beijing Global Friend Airports CEO Forum last year. Many hope this close collaboration between the airports will pave the way for strong links between China and Scotland, with the possibility of direct flights between the countries in the future.
