The government has announced it is appointing several champions for cyber security, which may help companies engaged in developing data recovery systems for use in tackling cybercrime aimed at systemic disruption.
Business secretary Vince Cable named industry expert from TechUK Andy Williams as the UK’s new cyber security business champion.
He also revealed the founder of Malvern cyber security cluster and the UK Cyber Security Forum Dr Emma Philpott will lead an initiative in which small businesses join into regional clusters, meeting monthly and sharing ideas to enhance their cyber security.
Dr Cable is also seeking to boost the development of new security innovations by UK firms, with a £4 million prize fund for the best ideas.
He remarked: “Maintaining innovation and growth requires continued investment. Committing a further £4 million will help businesses of all sizes turn their ideas for counter cyber threats into reality.”
David Jones, the general manager for enterprise data protection at HP, told IT Pro Portal recently that data back-up systems should use the latest technology to ensure they can retrieve lost information swiftly.
