|Ensuring the safety of the UK|
Matt Hancock, Minister for the Cabinet Office, recently announced that the new National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) will be launching in October 2016. Based in London, the NCSC hopes to ensure that citizens, public & private sector organisations and the UK’s critical national infrastructure remains safer online.
As part of the Government’s new National Cyber Security strategy, the NCSC will be a critical asset in the UK’s evolving national security climate. As one of its first tasks, it will work with the Bank of England and produce advice for the financial sector for managing cyber security effectively, helping to ensure that “businesses of all shapes & sizes understand the threats and what they can do to mitigate them.
