The UK Government announced their new National Cyber Strategy. The strategy officially launched yesterday morning (Wednesday 15th December) at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham. Stephen Barclay MP, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, set out the Strategy’s vision for the UK to be a leading responsible and democratic cyber power, able to protect and promote our interests in and through cyberspace.
UK Research and Innovation’s Digital Security by Design (DSbD), as highlighted in the strategy, will help to strengthen the UK’s position as a world leader in secure microprocessor design.
Digital Security by Design announced four new Demonstrator projects
Digital Security by Design is also announcing £7.2 million in funding for four collaborative projects which will demonstrate the impact of new technologies. These projects will use the DSbD technology platform prototype, known as the Morello board, funded through the DSbD programme, and developed by a consortium led by Arm.
This funding is also supported by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
Minister for Media, Data and Digital Infrastructure, Julia Lopez, said:
“The digital security by design programme is making sure pioneering safety measures are built into digital devices before they reach consumers and businesses.”
“This new funding will make it easier to test this technology and alongside our ground-breaking cyber strategy, is an important step in keeping people and businesses right across the country safe online.”

Professor John Goodacre, Challenge Director for Digital Security by Design, said:
“I’m pleased to see that the importance of new technology being developed through Digital Security by Design has been recognised in the new National Cyber Strategy announced today.
The DSbD Challenge Is a £200m collaborative initiative bringing together government, industry and academia to transform digital technology and create a resilient, and secure foundation for a safer future.
These demonstrator projects are investigating how these technologies can benefit their business and further enhance the cyber security of living and working in the UK.”
Funded projects include:
