Ensuring the security of digital technology at the periphery – business-led demonstrations

*** This opportunity will be available soon. The following information is subject to change. ***

Innovate UK and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, with support from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and the Home Office, invite applications for their business-led demonstrations under the ensuring the security of digital technology at the periphery programme. This aims to ensure that internet of things systems are safe and secure, particularly as more critical applications emerge meaning there is increased vulnerability to broader, more sophisticated cyber threats. Effective solutions need to combine cyber and physical safety and security with human behaviour, influence new regulatory response and validate and demonstrate novel approaches.

This will build on current investments including the PETRAS IoT research hub and other activities supported through IoT UK.

This phase focuses on the following three areas of IoT cyber security:

  • the resilience and recovery of data;
  • intelligent control systems for industry and commercial buildings;
  • the digital home.

 Total budget £6 million.
