In a complex and changing world, MI5’s job is to help keep the country safe. The UK faces a breadth and variety of national security threats. To stay ahead of these, MI5 must change and adapt, including by continually improving the way data is obtained and analysed, whilst keeping its methods and techniques safe from our adversaries. In this lecture, Ken McCallum, the Director General of MI5, will explore how MI5 uses maths and data science to detect and disrupt threat, and how they are working with partners to protect the UK’s resilience and economic security.

The Bowman lectures aim to highlight the crucial role of the mathematical sciences in addressing major issues of public importance.
