Universities focus cyber research on infrastructure and healthcare
Cyber research in UK academia is concentrating heavily on critical infrastructure and the healthcare sector, according to a review of current and past projects. Crossword Cybersecurity has carried a global survey to build a database looking at the focus of relevant research in universities. It said that in the UK about £8.3 million has been invested in projects looking at the cyber elements of infrastructure security, at universities including Oxford, Glasgow, Surrey, De Montfort, Lancaster, Brighton and University and Imperial Colleges London. A significant £5.6 million has gone to work on security for healthcare, with the universities involved being Newcastle, Lancaster, Queen’s Belfast, Royal Holloway, University College London, York, Exeter, Middlesex and Northumbria. The four UK projects with the greatest funding are in safe robotics, big data security, cyber crime and quantum technology for secure communications. The research also revealed a sharp fall in spending on security in big data projects.
