12 July 2017

The Government launched its five year National Cyber Security Strategy in 2016 to ensure that the UK has the right capability and capacity to defend our people, businesses, and assets; deter our adversaries; and develop the skills and capabilities we need across the public and private sectors.

A significant early milestone to support delivery of the Strategy was the formation of the National Cyber Security Centre. Implementation of the Strategy including the role and powers of the National Cyber Security Centre are subject to continual review to ensure that we are responding at the scale and pace required to meet the challenges we face.
