Surrey Centre for the Digital Economy

This week in the digital economy.

Themes this week: cybersecurity, supply chains, and automotive insurance. Happy reading!

Firstly, some “hot off the press” research funding from the EPSRC for the CoDE team: the title of the grant is: Addressing Cybersecurity and Cybercrime via a co-Evolutionary Approach to Reducing Human-Related Risks.
This award is particularly important for two reasons. First, it gets the team engaged in aspects of cybercrime and cybersecurity - one of the most galvanizing themes that will impact business and society in a digital economy. Secondly, it is inter-disciplinary in focus, and also intra-Faculty, inter-Faculty and inter-university!
The grant is led by Dr Shujun Li in Computer Science and includes the strong involvement of Dr Mike McGuire in Sociology. Other Universities involved include UCL security and crime science and Warwick Manufacturing Group. The grant is for 24 months and the value is 1.1M, with the Surrey Business School amount yet to be finalised.
Congratulations to Roger Maull and the wider CoDE team for their work in securing the award!

As we know….health insurance is going the same way with wearables and IoT….
