The Minimum Cyber Security Standard was issued to HMG departments in April 2018 and published on GOV.UK in June. The responsibility for security, including risk management and policy implementation, sits with the Accounting Officer and the executive board of each department.

Through existing assurance mechanisms set out in the Security Policy Framework and working with partners across government, including the National Technical Authorities, implementation of the new standard will continue to be monitored.
