This is not just another best practice recommendation, or a new AI tool to monitor your network and endpoints, this is a change which will enhance the central hardware and software of a computer so they can help block the issues responsible for up to 70% of today’s vulnerabilities and allow future products and services to protect their data and keep control of their operations.

The UKRI managed DSbD programme is working with business and researchers to prototype this step-change while also giving the broader business community the visibility and opportunity to be ready to benefit from the change.

The growing number of data breaches and cyber-attacks are exposing the widespread nature of digital vulnerabilities and it's clear no sector of business, infrastructure or society is safe. Whether it’s delivering critical infrastructure, the processing of valuable data, or the digitization of industry, business will grow or die depending on the cyber security and resilience of their computerised systems.

The DSbD programme is supporting a 2nd round Demonstrator competition that will provide 2 or 3 projects a share of up to £6 million. Open to UK businesses, the leaders of an industry sector, to collaborate with technology suppliers and academics to investigate and evaluate the impact the new DSbD technologies may have on the productivity from, or capabilities of, future digital security by design products or services.

An ideal consortium will be able to represent an industry sector that requires secure system operation with safety and resilience or those that manage high-value data assets in which compromise may cause serious economic or personal harm. Through this competition, business from these sectors have a unique opportunity to be part of a transformational change in securing their business functions, products and services stretching across their supply chain providers.
