A Finsbury college has been given £400,000 to help fight cyber crime.
City University’s Centre for Software Reliability won the prestigious research grant for a project called Communicating and Evaluating Cyber Risk and Dependencies.
They will use the cash to analyse the danger to the UK from hackers and how to make the country’s infrastructure less vulnerable.
Professor Robin Bloomfield, from the Northampton Square University, said: “The research will produce a methodology supported with modelling software that can be deployed in the risk assessment of critical infrastructures.

“It will take a scenario-based approach to risk assessment addressing uncertainties and doubts in intelligence, the systems themselves as well as the impact of attack.
“The risk communication is an important component of the project and will consider the needs of different stakeholders, not just highly technical people.”
