To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, what progress has been made on enhancing cyber-security in the UK.
27 April 2016
Between 2011 and 2016, we invested £860 million in a National Cyber Security Programme to deliver the 2011 UK Cyber Security Strategy. I made a Written Ministerial Statement on the 14th April to the House: “Final annual report on the 2011 – 2016 UK Cyber Security Strategy” with an accompanying Annual Report. Key achievements include the launch of the UK’s Computer Emergency Response Team; disruption of cyber threats by the new National Cyber Crime Unit and the growth of the Cyber Essentials scheme for companies. This year, we will be publishing a new five year strategy and launching a new National Cyber Security Centre in the autumn.
