Centre for Digital Trust and Society

Project Details


The Centre drives forward an interdisciplinary research agenda that is timely and innovative, building a holistic, interdisciplinary understanding of what trust and security could be, and should be, in the digital era. The focus of the Centre is on barriers to and enablers of trust in digital technologies. Our scope includes cybersecurity but goes beyond this: we see digital security as part of a set of broader issues of trust and trustworthiness, distrust and trust exploitation, and trust-building and resilience.

The Centre is led from Humanities and is situated within the Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research. However, we bring together researchers from across the University and our six research clusters are led from Criminology, Politics, Social Statistics, Computer Science, Mathematics, and the Alliance Manchester Business School.
