National Risk Register

CABINET OFFICE News Release (087-08) issued by The Government News Network on 8 August 2008

As announced in the National Security Strategy published earlier this year, the Cabinet Office has today published the National Risk Register which sets out the Government assessment of the likelihood and potential impact of a range of different risks that may directly affect the UK.

The National Risk Register is designed to increase awareness of the kinds of risks the UK faces, and encourage individuals and organisations to think about their own preparedness. The register also includes details of what the Government and emergency services are doing to prepare for emergencies.

The National Risk Register is available on the Cabinet Office website at http://www.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/reports/national_risk_register.aspx
