Connected devices and sensors in our homes and workplaces – known as the Internet of Things (IoT) – offer huge potential for improving how we live and move around.
We can measure health data, travel habits and energy use, predict demand for public services and support planning and management of critical national infrastructure.
But as more devices become connected, the more vulnerable they are to sophisticated cyber security threats. This becomes even more important as critical applications for the IoT emerge.
Innovate UK has up to £6 million to invest in organisations with ideas that address industry-focused cyber security-related challenges.
