Matt Hancock sets out tech investment plans

During a UKTI-sponsored visit to Israel, Cabinet Office Minister Matt Hancock has announced HMG will work with Israeli experts to enhance cyber physical security tools in areas affecting industrial control systems, the internet of things and driverless cars. Hancock also cites the Israeli model of cyber innovation centres as one that HMG intends to copy.

The announcements have implications for IT companies in the UK, including more opportunities to win sensitive public sector IT contracts for firms with close ties to UK academic institutions and a clear steer on which cyber security issues are being prioritised by HMG in light of their knock-on effects for major national infrastructure investments – especially in energy and transport.
