As the UK is one of the most digitally dependent economies, with the digital sector estimated to be worth over £118bn per year, it is very re-assuring to know that we are looking to step up our security defences.
The aim of this program is to make the UK the hardest possible target for any cyber attack attempt.
The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) in London is designed to improve Britain's resilience to attacks and act as an operational nerve centre."We want to make the UK the hardest target," Ciaran Martin, the centre's chief executive, told the BBC. The NCSC - part of intelligence agency GCHQ - says the UK is facing about 60 serious cyber-attacks a month.There were 188 attacks classed by the NCSC as Category Two or Three during the last three months.
