The aim of the project is to “design out” many forms of cyber threats by “designing in” security and protection technology.

The money comes as part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, which should see additional financial backing from industry players. A further £30m of Government investment will aim to ensure smart systems, such as controlling in-home heating from a mobile phone, are more secure.

Official figures show that more than 40 per cent of UK businesses have experienced a cyber-security breach or attack in the last 12 months.

Attackers can use hackable home Wi-Fi routers in botnets to attack major services and businesses.

Businesses are also having to spend increasing amounts on cyber security, up to 20-40 per cent of their IT spend in some cases.


The funding should also protect consumers, who are often worse affected by mass information leaks than the organisation that hold their data.

Business Secretary Greg Clark said he wants the UK to become a world leader in the race to eradicate some of the most damaging cyber security threats: “This could be a real step-change in computer and online security, better protecting businesses, services and consumers from cyber-attacks and bringing benefits to all sectors of the economy.”

“With businesses having to invest more and more in cyber security, ‘designing in’ security measures into the hardware’s fabric will not only protect our businesses and consumers but ultimately cut cyber security costs to businesses,” he said. “This is our modern Industrial Strategy in action. Building on the UK’s heritage and strengths in computing and cyber security alongside the Government and industry investing together to ensure the UK capitalises on its position to become a leader in the growing markets and technologies of tomorrow.”

Dr Ian Levy, National Cyber Security Centre’s technical director, said: “We hope this additional investment will drive fundamental changes to products we use every day. This is vital work, because improving hardware can eradicate a wide range of vulnerabilities that cause significant harm.”

In 2017 the director of GCHQ said that cyber security is as important as counter terrorism efforts.
