Philippa Gardner attended the official opening by the Queen of the National Cyber Security Centre’s new headquarters in London. The NCSC, part of GCHQ, aims to make their work on cyber security more open; it will publish research, organise events and will provide advice on cyber security to businesses and members of the public.

Philippa was introduced to the Queen and spoke to her and Prince Philip about her role as director of the new Research Institute on Verified Trustworthy Software Systems (VeTSS).

For details of the opening and a photo of the Queen see the BBC news page on the opening.
