The Cabinet Office is developing Security Incident Management Standards. These define the minimum measures that Departments must implement with regards to managing security incidents and breaches. This will drive consistency across all Departments in how security incidents and breaches are reported and managed. These Standards will be issued to departments in early 2018. The HMG Security Policy Framework already requires Departments to notify Cabinet Office of significant security breaches.
