It is the trimer of cyanogen chloride.
Cyanuric chloride and the bromide trimerizes at elevated temperatures over a carbon catalyst:

Atrazine

Altrazine
Cyanuric chloride is the main precursor to the popular but controversial herbicide atrazine.
Atrazine is prepared from cyanuric chloride, which is treated sequentially with ethylamine and isopropyl amine.

Cyanogen chloride

ClCN
It is the trimer of cyanogen chloride. Cyanuric chloride is prepared in two steps from hydrogen cyanide via the intermediacy of cyanogen chloride, which is trimerized at elevated temperatures over a carbon catalyst:
The compound trimerizes in the presence of acid to the heterocycle called cyanuric chloride.

1,3,5-Triazine

dihydro-1,3,5-triazines-triazinetriazine
This white solid is the chlorinated derivative of 1,3,5-triazine.
2,4,6-Trichloro-1,3,5-triazine (cyanuric chloride) is the starting point for the manufacture of many herbicides such as Simazine and atrazine.

Simazine

Other triazine herbicides, such as simazine, anilazine and cyromazine are made in an analogous way.
Simazine may be prepared in the laboratory from cyanuric chloride crystals and a strong solution of ethyl amine (at least 50 percent by number in water).

Swern oxidation

SwernMoffatt–SwernSwern condition
Cyanuric Chloride can also be used as an alternative to oxalyl chloride in the Swern oxidation.
With cyanuric chloride or trifluoroacetic anhydride instead of oxalyl chloride, the reaction can be warmed to −30 °C without side reactions.
