The Government is investing £860m in a comprehensive National Cyber Security Programme (NCSP) to protect the UK from cyber attacks, tackle cyber crime and make the UK one of the safest places in the world to do business online.

Ministers have been looking at the whole of the government's cyber security programme in the light of recent problems at Talk Talk and elsewhere and a further statement will be made next week as part of the Strategic Defence and Security Review.
