The Government identifies and assesses risks to the nation through the internal, classified National Security Risk Assessment, and the external National Risk Register, the most recent version of which was published in August. As set out in the UK Government Resilience Framework, each risk in the National Security Risk Assessment is owned and managed within Lead Government Departments.

Where those risks, including national security risks, relate to the work of the Cabinet Office, they are managed through the department's risk management processes. This includes oversight from a Chief Risk Officer.
