Cyber and Influence Science and Technology Centre (C&I STC)CDE Call for Research Proposals
The Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE) is the Ministry of Defence’s gateway for UK science andtechnology for industry, academia and other innovators to ensure that UK Armed Forces haveaccess to the best equipment, science and technology, now and in the future.
The 2010 Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR)
sets out the threat to the UK’s CyberSecurity:The Cyber and Influence Science & Technology Centre (C&I STC) is part of the Dstl ProgrammeOffice
and supports the implementation of the National Cyber Security Strategy across defence.This involves inter-disciplinary research across the physical, information and human sciencesdomains into the evolution of cyberspace and its influence on human behaviour. Its goal is todeliver the capabilities needed by UK MOD to train, exercise, rehearse and conduct militaryoperations in cyberspace in the same way that it does on land, sea and in the air. The C&I STC alsoworks across Government to address the capabilities needed to secure the UK’s broader interests incyberspace.
Securing Britain in an Age of Uncertainty: The Strategic Defence and Security Review; available fromwww.mod.uk/DefenceInternet/AboutDefence/WhatWeDo/PolicyStrategyandPlanning/SDSR/ 
The Programme Office in the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (dstl) is responsible for the planning, formulation and delivery of theoverall Science and Technology (S&T) research requirement for UK defence and security, as directed by the Ministry of Defence's (MOD) Researchand Development (R&D) Board.
“The risks emanating from cyber space (including the internet, wider telecommunications networks and computer systems) are one of the four Tier Onerisks to national security (set out in the National Security Strategy). These risks includehostile attacks upon the UK from other states, potential shortcomings in the UK’s cyber infrastructure, and the actions of cyber terrorists and criminals. But cyber space alsocreates opportunities for the UK Government and British businesses, which will derivebenefits from the protection that effective cyber security measures bring to the UK economy. These threats and opportunities are likely to increase significantly over thenext five to 10 years, as our dependence on cyber space deepens.”
