New initiative to protect the UK's critical national infrastructure

New research co-funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) will focus on the cyber-security of the UK’s vital industrial control systems which run, for example, manufacturing plants, power stations, the electricity grid, and the rail network.
The research, supported by £2.5m from the EPSRC, will help understand and mitigate threats from hackers or malware infiltrating the systems behind our critical national infrastructure.
The Research Institute in Trustworthy Industrial Control Systems (RITICS), based at Imperial College London, is co-ordinating the research into new projects at Queen’s University of Belfast, the University of Birmingham, City University London and Lancaster University.
The research investment comes from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and the UK’s National Cyber Security Programme. The Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) and GCHQ are actively supporting the research.
