UK DASA further offers £1m to develop Cyber Attack prediction technology


United Kingdom’s Department of Security Accelerator (DASA) is offering a £1 million funding to three teams who have been assigned the task of developing a technology that predicts and thwarts Cyber Attacks. Therefore, with the latest financial input, DASA has succeeded in putting the UK’s Defense Sector in top position ahead of its adversaries and boosting the UK’s prosperity.


DASA’s latest £1m phase 2 funding which brings the overall figure to £2m has been assigned to three organizations in the following way-


1.) Vauxhall based DecisionLab – £240,000 million in collaboration with DIEM Analytics and Arctica.


2.) Gloucestershire based Montvieux Limited- £250,000


3.) RiskAware LTD of Bristol funding £450,000 in collaboration with the University of Southampton


All the 3 organizations will work to develop, adapt and merge new technologies with UK’s Military Systems and Networks which are facing a rapid threat of offensive cyber action from nations such as North Korea, China, and Russia.


“Cyber Security has been in the arms race for decades while hackers are continuing to exploit vulnerabilities before they could be patched. DASA is planning that its funds will be used by 3 organizations in developing a new tech that helps the military in predicting, preparing, and thwarting the nation against all future cyber attacks”, said Rebecca Duncan, Project Manager, DASA.


“The funding in phase 2 will help the military environment to adapt to the ever-evolving cyber landscape and will enhance its defensive skills with the predictive approach”, said Robert Hammond, Delivery Manager, DASA.


Note- DASA is known to find and fund R&D related to innovation-driven technology solutions to give UK’s defense sector a great boost; positioning it at the top of all its adversaries.
