The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) was established in October 2016. Since then, the Ministry of Defence has developed a close collaborative relationship with the NCSC. Members of the Armed Forces are employed in a number of roles within the NCSC, but I am withholding further details as their disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the Ministry of Defence.
