UK needs cybersecurity 'centre of excellence'

Zenzic Cybersecurity Report

Zenzic, the DfT’s connected and autonomous vehicle accelerator, is recommending the establishment of a 'centre of excellence' to leverage the UK’s lead in cyber resilience.

A new report co-authored with the Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles summarises the findings of seven projects which have been funded by the centre (CCAV) and supported by Zenzic and Innovate UK (part of UKRI) into cyber security for connected and autonomous mobility (CAM).

The report concludes that a cyber centre of excellence, focussed on CAM, should be created to bring together experts and new capabilities around cyber security.

The proposed centre would serve as a forum for experts from across industry and academia, acting as a hub to share knowledge and enhance skills.

Daniel Ruiz, chief executive of Zenzic said: “The Cyber Centre of Excellence should develop a capability to monitor the operational security of CAM as it is deployed. This will enable the ongoing assessment and assurance of the cyber resilience of the CAM 'system' at large.”
