We cannot comment on exact figures regarding staff numbers or operational capability for national security reasons. However, the National Cyber Force (NCF) is made up of a roughly equal share of personnel from Defence and the UK intelligence community. The NCF is investing in our military and civilian recruitment, including our recruitment pipelines, by creating dedicated cyber career pathways to build a world class workforce and are investing to scale up the NCF, constructing a new headquarters in Samlesbury.
