This new cash injection is certainly a step in the right direction towards protecting our businesses and our sensitive private information, simultaneously encouraging nationwide awareness of the cyber-issue.

Security-first stance at every stage of the design, implementation, and deployment of software.
Software is critical infrastructure. As a species, we are increasingly dependent upon software in our daily lives, at work, for our health care, for our finances, and for every other critical infrastructure. The UK government has taken a bold and necessary step to improve the security of this foundational critical infrastructure. At the same time, the security of a system is only as strong as its ....
