The Government is taking a number of ambitious steps to deliver the new National Cyber Security Strategy. This is supported by an increased, transformational investment of £1.9bn across a five year spending period.

A significant recent success was the launch of the National Cyber Security Centre. The Centre is working to deliver the National Cyber Security Strategy, to improve the UK’s ability to respond to major cyber incidents, provide expert guidance on cyber security and push technological innovation for better, more automatic large-scale cyber security.
