Crossword signs agreement with University of Surrey

PRESS RELEASE

CROSSWORD SIGNS AGREEMENT WITH UNIVERSITY OF SURREY TO EXPLORE COMMERCIAL OPPORTUNITIES IN NOVEL
INFORMATION HIDING

Crossword  Cybersecurity Plc ("Crossword") the ISDX listed tech transfer company, is to  partner  with  the
University  of Surrey to jointly explore commercial opportunities leveraging patented research in  advanced
information hiding.

Dr  Shujun  Li,  Deputy  Director  of the Surrey Centre for Cyber Security (SCCS)  has  conducted  advanced
research  in  the  area  of information hiding using information systems. The approach  provides  a  highly
efficient  way  to  encode information into the normal ebb and flow of everyday use  of  computer  systems.
Crossword is working exclusively with Dr Shujun Li's team to commercialise their work.

Tom  Ilube, Crossword's CEO said "University of Surrey is a world leader in the field of cyber security and
is  one  of only 13 universities to be awarded Centre of Excellence status by the UK Government. We believe
Surrey's  information hiding research will help tackle confidentiality and privacy problems faced worldwide
by organisations and citizens alike."

Dr  Shujun Li, lead researcher on the project explained: "This research, for which a patent has been filed,
provides  a  highly  effective and covert way to scramble information into the  daily  use  of  information
systems.  This work reflects the Centre's expertise in secure communications and as a result  Crossword  is
working with our team of cyber security experts to develop its work into a highly flexible platform to meet
today's cyber security challenges".

The Directors accept responsibility for this statement.
