The Joint Committee on the National Security Strategy is inviting submissions for the report
The Joint Committee on the National Security Strategy has begun an investigation into the UK’s level of preparedness when it comes to cybersecurity.
The second National Cyber Security Strategy, as it is called, has been geven a budget of £1.9 billion to investigate the challenges the UK faces in terms of cybersecurity and will run until 2021.
Although the initiative was launched in November last year, it’s only now inviting companies to put forward their suggestions on how the UK can make sure it has watertight policies when it comes to combatting cybersecurity.
Topics for submissions will include providing information about the types of cyber threats faced by the UK, learning points from the first Cyber Security Strategy, the development of offensive cyber security strategies and how the government should be positioned to combat threats.
“The internet has changed our daily lives almost beyond recognition from the way we communicate, to the way we trade and the way Government provides services to citizens,” said Margaret Beckett MP, chair of the Joint Committee on the National Security Strategy.
“However, while the digital revolution has opened up a whole host of opportunities, it has also created new vulnerabilities. The national security implications of the leap to cyber are a matter of increasing concern.”
