The Rt. Hon Dr Liam Fox MP, discusses legislation and regulation and whether this means a more coherent government approach to Cyber.
Cyber security was one of four top priorities for UK national security in the government’s 2010 National Security Strategy. Effective approaches to cyber security integrate technological measures with those relating to processes and workforces. There is no all-encompassing regulation of cyber security in the UK, although a growing number of organisations are complying with voluntary principles. Better communication of cyber issues and solutions within industry, and between industry and government, is needed to strengthen overall resilience and security. This means the implementation of government legislation to ensure cyber security throughout.
