A competition will find answers to dealing with MoD security threats

A new competition is looking for research that will help Ministry of Defence (MoD) systems automate their response to cyber threats.

Jim Pennycook, Head of Operations at centre for Defence Enterprise, said: “Our armed forces rely on cyberspace to conduct successful operations and the £2 million funding available for this competition demonstrates MOD’s commitment to cyber defence. Automated responses are an essential part of cyber defence processes and this funding will allow us to support a range of innovative proposals in this area.

The total funding available for this competition is £2 million, to be split equally over 2 phases.

Registration is open and further information on the automating cyber defence responses competition is available here.
