This letter follows a Memorandum of Understanding signed by The Office of Cyber Security and Information Assurance in the Cabinet Office and the Israeli government in 2013.
It sets out an agreement that £1.2 million of joint funding will be used to fund a cyber research initiative through the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The project aims to encourage UK and Israeli academics to work together more effectively. The 6 areas, chosen in consultation with academics as the areas that will benefit most from working together, are:
- identity management
- governance: regulating cyber security
- privacy assurance and perceptions
- mobile and cloud security
- human aspects of security or usable security
