Up to £850k of funding now available for the second phase of the Predictive Cyber Analytics competition to develop a deployable solution to predict and counter future cyber threats.

The UK Defence Science and Technology Laboratory and Defence and Security Accelerator competition is looking for novel approaches to cyber-security that enable proactive defence in a hostile cyber environment. It says that ultimately these approaches could predict the most likely offensive cyber-events and identify optimal cyber defences.

The competition seeks proposals that can be implemented using real data/ingest social media feeds and other public data, ie not theoretical models.

It is expected that up to three projects will be funded for up to 12 months, with additional fundinganticipated for a future phase.

Further details about the competition can be found in the Predictive Cyber Analytics Phase 2 competition document.

This competition is now open and will close at midday BST on 12 August 2019.
