London Gets New Funding to Improve Cyber-Resilience

The Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) is to receive a share of US$ 100 million (£64 million) from the Rockefeller Foundation to improve its resilience against cyber-crime and other digital threats.
Announced today in Singapore by the Rockefeller Foundation, London became one of 35 new cities to join the already 60-strong network of global cities united in the fight against cyber-crime. There were some 330 global contenders for the additional funding. Winning cities also receive a package of support and resilience-building expertise from private and public sector organisations.
This support will include the appointment of a senior City Hall officer to lead the delivery of the programme, which will run alongside existing resilience plans and initiatives at various government agencies – including the Cabinet Office and the Metropolitan Police.
