In December 2021 the UK Government published its new National Cyber Strategy which sets out how the UK will solidify its position as a global cyber leader.
This is the first major milestone following the publication of the Government’s Integrated Review earlier this year; the ‘National Cyber Strategy’ sets out how government will protect and promote UK interests in rapidly evolving online world.
The strategy builds on the significant progress made in the cyber-space over the last five years which has seen the UK sector grow rapidly, with over 1,400 businesses generating revenues of £8.9 billion last year and supporting 46,700 skilled jobs whilst also attracting significant overseas investment.
Through the strategy, the government is calling on all parts of society to play their part in reinforcing the UK’s economic and strategic strengths in cyberspace – this means more diversity in the workforce, levelling up the cyber sector across all UK regions, expanding offensive and defensive cyber capabilities and prioritising cyber security in the workplace, boardrooms and digital supply chains.
