The Home Office, with its partners, has kept the Computer Misuse Act 1990 (CMA) under constant review to ensure the UK has a robust legal framework that enables law enforcement agencies to tackle cybercrime. We set out in the Serious and Organised Crime Strategy (October 2013) that we will bring forward proposals to amend the CMA, including to update existing offences to cover importing tools for cyber crime. We will legislate as soon as the parliamentary timetable allows.
