Cyber Security of the UK’s Critical National Infrastructure

A newly published report from the UK joint parliamentary committee on national security strategy calls for greater political leadership on cyber-defence with a call for a cyber-security minister in the Cabinet to provide greater strategic direction and accountability.

The report – Cyber Security of the UK’s Critical National Infrastructure – says: “Focused and proactive political leadership from the centre of Government is essential in driving change and ensuring a consistent approach across the many departments and agencies with responsibility for the resilience of CNI to cyber threats.”

“A greater focus and prioritisation of cyber-security and its association with new data management techniques within our government will make sure that we can enjoy the benefits of the ‘digital-first’ age without having to worry about the exposure of critical and sensitive information”, says Ian Smith, CEO and Founder Gospel Technology
