Next week, UK Research and Innovation’s Digital Security by Design (DSbD) challenge’s Four Nations Roadshow begins. The roadshow will journey across England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland and will feature talks from multiple speakers highlighting the developments in computing across the decades, the state of computing in the present day, and how we can move towards a safer, more secure future.

DSbD is an initiative supported by the UK government to transform digital technology and create a resilient and secure foundation for a safer future. Through a collaboration between academia, industry, and government, these new capabilities will pave the way for businesses and people to use and trust technology.  DSbD will enable a more trustworthy digital environment, in which only expected access to data and operations are permitted while limiting the impact of vulnerabilities.  DSbD will promote a mindset change around cyber security, giving the freedom to learn, trade, play, automate and collaborate safely.  

The first event is taking place this coming Monday, 21st February at the National Museum of Computing in Bletchley Park, where participants will hear about the Story of Computing, from the first attempts to use machines to solve mathematical problems to the IT which now pervades everyday life. Stellar speakers will talk about the evolution of computing and why it is so important to look back in order to move forwards. Attendees will also hear from Professor John Goodacre, UKRI DSbD Challenge Director, on the reliance on computers in today’s society.

At the morning-long event attendees will hear from the following speakers:

The talks will be followed by a lunch where participants have an opportunity to chat with the speakers, as well as take advantage of a guided tour of the historically important Bletchley Park.

After the inaugural event on Monday, the Roadshow will be heading on to the following locations:
