Collaboration key to Government’s cyber security plan

Collaboration key to Government’s cyber security plan

Francis Maude, Cabinet Office Minister, has reflected upon the National Cyber Security Programme so far, saying how private-public collaboration has a significant role to play in the protection of UK firms from cyber criminals.

Senior government personnel have talked up the  effect the programme has had, illustrating the changes that have occurred in the last two years.

Part of the programme is the Government’s own 10-step guide on cyber security, as well as the Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership and, earlier in June, the Cyber Essentials Scheme. The Government has also launched CERT-UK, the first UK response team to digital emergencies.

Maude was preparing to speak recently at the HMG flagship conference for information assurance and cyber security in Westminster.

Maude said at the event

“Cyber security presents both a challenge and an opportunity. That’s why we are bringing together government and industry to debate current threats and work on solutions and opportunities.

“As part of our long-term economic plan for the country, this Government is determined to make the UK one of the safest places to do business in cyberspace.”

The Government clearly sees the dangers in cyber security, and is determined to ensure that UK businesses follow suit. If it succeeds, it will likely mean an increase in information security vacancies, with firms hiring the necessary personnel to implement an effective strategy in the ongoing battle against cyber crime.
