Cyber Resilient Scotland: strategic framework
This framework builds on Scotland’s first cyber resilience strategy, Safe, secure and prosperous: a cyber resilience strategy for Scotland, expanding on its achievements and addressing ongoing – and new – challenges.
Cyber resilience is about more than making technologies and systems secure. It is about our preparedness to meet cyber risk, and how well-equipped we are to withstand, manage, recover quickly and learn from cyber incidents. Features of cyber resilience include: Knowledge and awareness of risk and threat, access to guidance, tools and resources, understanding policy and processes, learning and skills.
The Strategic Framework for a Cyber Resilient Scotland (“the Framework”) will enable the Scottish Government and its partners to achieve the following vision: Scotland thrives by being a digitally secure and resilient nation.

These are as follows: People recognise the cyber risks and are well prepared to manage them, Businesses and organisations recognise the cyber risks and are well prepared to manage them, digital public services are secure and cyber resilient, national cyber incident response arrangements are effective
