Cyan-led consortium selected for ground-breaking UK Government Challenge Fund

A consortium led by Cyan Forensics Ltd has been awarded £85,000 by the UK Government to demonstrate innovative technologies to tackle one of society’s most pressing issues – keeping children safe online in end-to-end encrypted messaging environments. 
As part of ‘The Safety Tech Challenge Fund’, which launched in September, businesses from around the world were challenged to prototype and evaluate ways in Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM) can be detected and reported within end-to-end encrypted environments, whilst balancing user privacy and security considerations. Five businesses, including Cyan, have been selected to receive funding for their projects, which will run from November 2021 to March 2022. 
Ian Stevenson, Cyan CEO, commented: “Cyan’s technology, combined with the skillsets and experience of our partners Crisp, the IWF and the University of Edinburgh, means we have the right mix of talent and expertise to tackle one of society’s most pressing issues and deliver a solution that will make a real difference to the lives of children around the world.
