Get involved

Get involved

Developers and tech organisations can get involved in several ways including taking part in networking and learning events, contributing to open source projects, requesting the prototype hardware and software to experiment with or joining Digital Security by Design through the Technology Access Programme that offers the hardware as well as technical guidance.

Request an Arm Morello board

If you are not based in the UK and have a project idea that could use an Arm Morello prototype board, this route is available for you. It does not enable technical support or funding, and a limited number of boards are available.

Digital Security by Design Social Science Hub+

Learn about how social science and the STEM disciplines are working together to address the DSbD challenge and the regulatory and policy environment through the Digital Security by Design Social Science Hub+.


Digital Security by Design events are happening throughout the year so you can learn about the technology, listen to experts, network and keep up-to-date with the latest thinking in the cybersecurity space.

If you can’t make it to an event on the day, check out our YouTube channel for scheduled livestreams and event recordings.
