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
