Mainstreaming the National Cyber Security Strategy

The National Cyber Security Strategy (NCSS) and National Cyber Security Programme (NCSP) are now well established but are due to end in 2021. Whilst they are delivering transformative change at pace and scale, the continuing evolution of the threat and the emergence of new technologies mean that the UK government will need to continue to adapt its approach beyond 2021.

Cabinet Office is starting a stream of work to determine how to transition beyond the end of the NCSS/P and would like to engage with experts from industry and academia as well as across government. They’re looking for fresh ideas and approaches relating to the following issues;

  • how to understand and react to the evolving threat;
  • how to adapt to new technology trends;
  • the role of industry, academia and wider society in cyber security;
  • the role of government, where it should focus and what unique capabilities it can bring to the table and
  • how government should approach cyber security (e.g. centrally managed or BAU within departments?).

To compliment this piece of work, we are running a workshop with Cabinet Office to give techUK members an opportunity to collect ideas and views on these issues and feed this back into government.  This workshop will help inform Government on the future direction of UK cyber security policy post-2021.
