Cyber Security

Yesterday the government launched a new Cyber Security Strategy to crack down on cyber criminals and strengthen our public services against cyber-attacks – protecting against the harmful impacts of cybercrime.

  • The sudden shift of many normal human activities which used to be usually conducted in other ways to conducting them online, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, has given cyber criminals an unprecedented opportunity to disrupt our day to day lives and do our organisations harm. 
  • That is why the government has launched Britain's first ever Government Cyber Security Strategy – investing £2.6 billion in cyber over the next three years and launching the new Cyber Fast Stream to produce a generation of leaders with the technical expertise to bring our strategy to life.  
  • This marks a hugely important step in our journey to create a cyber resilient public sector and a better-defended government that can deliver for the British people free from cyber harm.
