Effective mitigation and management of the UK's risks depends on high-quality and reliable data, devices and systems
4 GRAND CHALLENGES
In 2017 the UK Government set 4 Grand Challenges to put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future.
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND DATA
"We will put the UK at the forefront of the AI and data revolution."
The first mission is to use data, artificial intelligence and innovation to transform the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of chronic diseases by 2030.
"We will maximise the advantages for UK industry from the global shift to clean growth."
The first mission is to at least halve the energy use of new buildings by 2030.
FUTURE OF MOBILITY
"We will become a world leader in the way people, goods and services move."
The first mission is to put the UK at the forefront of the design and manufacturing of zero emission vehicles, with all new cars and vans effectively zero emission by 2040.
"We will harness the power of innovation to help meet the needs of an ageing society."
Our first mission is to ensure people can enjoy at least five extra healthy independent years of life by 2035, while narrowing the gap between the experience of the richest and poorest.
Empowering today's leaders of emerging and innovative technology with the specialist skills and support they need to effectively manage risk and meet the UK's targets

3 KEY CHALLENGES FACING THE UK
SERIOUS AND ORGANISED CRIME
"Serious and organised crime is the most deadly national security threat faced by the UK" Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP, Former Home Secretary, 2018
Serious and organised crime affects more UK citizens, more often, than any other national security threat and leads to more deaths in the UK each year than all other national security threats combined. It costs the UK at least £37 billion annually.
CLIMATE CHANGE: PRIORITY RISK AREAS
"The Threats Presented by Climate Change", House of Lords Library Briefing, 24 January 2019
The UK has identified several priority climate risk areas including flooding & coastal change; health, wellbeing & productivity; water supply shortages; natural ecosystems, soils and biodiversity; food production & trade; and new & emerging pests and diseases.
THE THREAT TO OUR DEMOCRACY
Disinformation and ‘fake news’: Final Report
House of Commons Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, Eighth Report of Session 2017–19
Foreign Influence in Political Campaigns
“The speed of technological development has coincided with a crisis of confidence in institutions and the media in the West. This has enabled foreign countries intent on destabilising democratic institutions to take advantage of this crisis.”
GLOBAL CATASTROPHIC RISKS
THE BIGGER PICTURE
According to the Cambridge Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER), plausible global catastrophic risks include:
tipping points in environmental systems due to climate change or mass biodiversity loss;
malicious or accidentally harmful use of artificial intelligence;
malicious use of, or unintended consequences, from advanced biotechnologies;
a natural or engineered global pandemic; and
intentional, miscalculated, accidental, or terrorist-related use of nuclear weapons.
"Without action, these catastrophic risks will only grow over time, whether it be on climate change, ecothreats, synthetic biology or cyber"
Professor Lord Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal and co-founder of CSER
Mitigation and management of risk depends on the collection of reliable data - processed, analysed, stored and exchanged using secure devices, platforms, systems & communication technology.
