New NCSC CEO to deliver first major speech in the role this morning

Lindy Cameron will speak to a virtual audience at Queen’s University, Belfast, today.

The new NCSC CEO will today warn against complacency while outlining future cyber risks during her first speech in the role.

The full speech will be available later today after it is delivered.

Lindy Cameron will say:

“The cyber security landscape we see now in the UK reflects huge progress and relative strength – but it is not a position we can be complacent about.

“Cyber security is still not taken as seriously as it should be, and simply is not embedded in UK boardrooms.

“The pace of change is no excuse – in boardrooms, digital literacy is as non-negotiable as financial or legal literacy. Our CEOs should be as close to their CISO as their Finance Director and General Counsel.

“And we want to help them to develop this knowledge, as we’re all too aware that cyber skills are not yet fundamental to our education – even though these are life skills like wiring a plug or changing a tyre as well as skills for the future digital economy.”
