DASA competition: Reducing Cyber Risk Across Defence
This competition seeks proposals to help quantify and reduce the cyber risk across Defence, enhance digital resilience and enable Defence to be secure by default.
This Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) competition is funded by the Cyber Resilience Programme (CRP) in Defence Digital, a part of Strategic Command.
Cyber attacks are becoming more sophisticated, with potentially more impact on military operations. This Themed Competition seeks proposals that will help to quantify and reduce the cyber risk across Defence, enhance digital resilience and enable Defence to be secure by default.
This competition seeks:
- Novel tools that strengthen digital resilience across defence
- Novel approaches that enable security by default
- Novel ways to quantify Operational Technology risk
This competition is interested in innovation projects that will deliver outputs at Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 6 – technology model or prototype demonstration in a relevant environment.
Total funding available
The total possible funding available for this competition is £880K (excluding VAT).
This competition is looking to fund up to 5 proposals.
Additional funding for further phases to increase Technology Readiness Level (TRL) may be available. If there will be a future phase, it will be open to applications from all innovators and not just those that submitted successful bids in Phase 1.
Submission deadline: Midday (GMT) on 31 October 2023
