Around a third of the approximately 850 people currently employed by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) have outward-facing advisory roles, as part of the NCSC’s remit to provide expert, trusted guidance to help protect all sectors of the economy and members of the public. This includes around 25 communications specialists, who work in partnership with other communications specialists across government and the private sector. For reasons of National Security, we are unable to provide further breakdown of staff numbers and costs.
