To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, how much has been spent on cyber security for his Department in each of the last five years.
A core component of our National Cyber Strategy is to strengthen the cyber security of government and public services. The Government Cyber Security Strategy, launched in January 2022, will make sure that core government functions are resilient to cyber attacks. This work will be supported by an enhanced assurance regime to raise standards and a new Government Cyber Coordination Centre. The delivery of both the National and Government strategies is supported by £2.6 billion of investment over three years. For reasons of national security we do not comment on how much is spent by each department on cyber security.
