The UK government has embraced the advantages of modern information technology, and acknowledged the risks through its initiatives for digital transformation of government and the development of the National Cyber Security Strategy. The cyber security initiatives in particular have gathered pace over the last few years and all parts of government are required to adopt appropriate policy and controls to protect both the sensitive personal and national data that they hold, and the continuity of service to the public.
With cyber security declared a top 3 risk in the Lloyds Risk Index and the UK government stating that,
there has never been greater pressure on the government to show that it is a credible global adviser on cyber security, with rigorous measures in place to protect its own critical assets.
Information assurance is key; risks around the use, processing, storage and transmission of information have to be taken seriously. The threat landscape is constantly evolving, with adversaries ranging from organised criminal groups looking to expose weaknesses for financial gain, to nation state actors seeking to gain economic advantage through sustained attempts to damage UK interests and steal intellectual property.
