New Government funding will assess cyber security of office products connected to the internet such as smart printers and room booking systems.

Organisations can now apply for funding to support research into the cyber security of office devices which can connect to the internet, such as printers, cameras, and room booking systems, to ensure they are properly protected against hackers.
