The Scotland Office has worked with UK Government departments and the Scottish Government to ensure that key infrastructure providers in Scotland have access to authoritative guidance on the appropriate steps to take to protect themselves from cyber-attacks.

Ensuring the UK’s Critical National Infrastructure is secure and resilient against cyber-attack is a priority for the Government as set out in the National Cyber Security Strategy. This is supported by a significant programme of work to provide advice, guidance and support to infrastructure providers and develop effective regulatory frameworks.
