SME Cyber Security: £5k grants available.
Small and micro-sized businesses can apply for government vouchers of up to £5,000 for specialist advice to boost their cyber security, and to protect new business ideas and intellectual property. The vouchers enable businesses to access services from the UK cyber security industry. This new scheme will also help businesses to adopt cyber essentials, the government’s flagship scheme to protect businesses online. To qualify for the Cyber Security Innovation Voucher organisations must:

  • Be starting up or running a micro, small or medium sized UK business;
  • Need help with something that’s a challenge for their business, not just a small improvement or change;
  • Have not previously had an Innovation Voucher from Innovate UK or the Technology Strategy Board.

More information about the grants, and details on how to apply for one, is available at: https://vouchers.innovateuk.org/cyber-security.
