On Tuesday 23 April David Willetts’ announced the results of the 2013 Cyber Breaches survey, which revealed that the number of cyber attacks hitting businesses has increased over the last year. 87% of small firms experienced a security breach last year, up 10% from 2012 levels. 93% of large organisations had also been targeted.
To help guard against these attacks, which can cost a small business 6% of its turnover, BIS is offering further funding and guidance. The Technology Strategy Board has extended a scheme to allow small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to bid for up to £5,000 to improve their cyber security. BIS is also publishing a guide to help small businesses improve their cyber security and make it part of their business risk management process.
David Willetts said: “The package of support we are announcing today will help small businesses protect valuable assets like financial information, websites, equipment, software and intellectual property, driving growth and keeping UK businesses ahead in the global race.”

They would get to list the delivery under their corporate social responsibility programmes as the organisation I’m working with is a social enterprise.
They are looking for:
1.companies that own the titles to aircraft and can sign a letter of intent stating that they are willing to transfer title of the 747 to the organisation.
2. Companies with experience in the logistics; i.e., disassembly and recycling of aircraft.

Hosted by the Farnborough Aerospace Consortium, the Defence Trade Co-operation Treaty Event in Farnborough was a successful demonstration of the Ministry of Defence and US Embassy’s commitment to the implementation of the Treaty and to ongoing engagement with UK Industry on the Treaty.
With attendees from a cross-section of the Defence Industry present, the event provided an insight into the origins of the Treaty, the benefits it offers and how it is best used successfully. It was also an opportunity for the perspectives of the UK Government, Industry and the US Government to be discussed and explored, as evidenced by an extensive Q&A session which demonstrated that the Farnborough Aerospace Consortium members have already given the Treaty careful consideration.
The government has announced a huge programme of support for the UK aerospace industry — more than £1 billion of public funding, to be matched by additional funding from industry, over seven years. Click here for the BIS press release and the UK Aerospace Growth Partnership’s strategy which lies behind the funding.
