We are delighted to welcome The Rt Hon. the Baroness Neville-Jones DCMG, Chairman of the British Joint Intelligence Committee to speak on the key challenges of UK National Security policy response.
It is a well-known concept that the first duty of government is the security of the nation, and as last year's National Security Review noted, the threats to our country are growing. Sadly but understandably, we immediately associate the word security with terrorism, but of course the threats range much much wider than that: the Review listed Cyber, International Military Conflict, Instability Overseas, Public Health (e.g. pandemics), and Major Natural Hazards. Longer term threats include pressure on allies or undermining of our military and economic alliances.
Baroness Neville-Jones is a former BBC Governor and Chairman of the British Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC). On 12 May 2010, Prime Minister David Cameron appointed Lady Neville-Jones his Minister of State for Security and Counter Terrorism in the Home Office with a permanent position on the newly created National Security Council.
