star this property answer text <p>Security of connected devices, the system they operate in and data is very important to consider in the Internet of Things. That is why security will be a theme throughout the government funded Internet of Things programme (IoTUK). We have included £10m for additional research to design in security, privacy and trust in IoT-related systems. In his report on the Internet of Things the Government Chief Scientist advised that security should be considered at the beginning and throughout the life cycle of Internet of Things applications. We have therefore made security a specific part of the competition scope for the large-scale demonstrator competitions.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is working with the radio industry to improve digital radio coverage for listeners across the UK. DCMS, the BBC and commercial radio are jointly funding the long term expansion of the local DAB network with the building of 182 new digital transmitters across Scotland, Wales, England and Northern Ireland and technical/frequency changes at a further 49 existing local DAB sites by the end of September 2016. As a result of this new investment, according to the independent communications regulator Ofcom, it is expected that local DAB coverage in Scotland will increase from 65% to 86% of households.</p><p>Ofcom has published detailed maps outlining the improvements to local DAB coverage for the local digital radio multiplex areas in Scotland and these are available at:<a href="http://stakeholders.ofcom.org.uk/broadcasting/radio/coverage/dab-coverage-plans/" target="_blank">http://stakeholders.ofcom.org.uk/broadcasting/radio/coverage/dab-coverage-plans/</a></p><p>Separately the BBC is rolling out its national DAB network to a further 163 transmitter sites across the UK, scheduled for completion by the end of 2015.
