The grant forms part of the government's £2.6 billion National Cyber Strategy, which aims to protect the UK from cyber threats and grow the country's digital economy.
The application deadline for the grant is 28 October 2022.
Rise in supply chain cyber attacks prompts new NCSC guidance
The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has published new guidance following a recent rise in supply chain cyber attacks, advising organisations to work with suppliers to identify weaknesses and boost resilience.
The guidance offers practical steps designed to help medium to large organisations gain assurance about the cyber risks of working with suppliers and that mitigations are in place.
