Computer scientists at the University of Essex are part of a research team which successfully won a £1.8m grant from the Government’s Digital Security by Design programme.

The UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) initiative aims to help the tech infrastructure of UK organisations and digital devices be more resilient to cyber attacks and the nine winning research teams will share the £10m investment.

Essex is a partner in the University of Glasgow-led AppControl project, which will leverage state-of-the-art microprocessors, developed earlier in the programme, to make sure vital systems that could be used in cars, medical robots or nuclear power plants remain digitally secure.
