|Proactive cyber defence rather than just reactive|
BEIS has announced the launch of new funding designed to make the UK a “world leader” in ‘designing out’ many forms of cyber threats to online services & digitally enabled products.
£70m of investment through the Industrial Strategy Fund will support research into the design & development of hardware so that it will be more secure & resilient from the outset. The government said that the aim is to ‘design out’ many forms of cyber threats by ‘designing in’ security solutions, which will help to “eradicate a significant proportion of the current cyber risks for businesses and services in future connected smart products”.
A further £30.6m of government investment, provided by UK Research and Innovation through the Strategic Priorities Fund, will aim to ensure smart internet connected devices are safe & secure.In addition the DCMS has committed to funding 4 new projects across England to encourage more women, BAME and neurodiverse candidates into a career in cyber security, with each benefiting from a total investment of at least £500,000. The funding forms part of the Cyber Skills Immediate Impact Fund (CSIIF) which is designed to help identify, train & place untapped talent from a range of backgrounds into cyber security.
