BSA EU Cybersecurity Dashboard Report – United Kingdom
The purpose of this report — the first-of-its-kind; BSA EU Cybersecurity Dashboard — is to provide government officials in each of the EU Member States with an opportunity to evaluate their country’s policies against these metrics, as well as their European neighbors.
The United Kingdom has a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy, which was released in 2011. It is complemented by a strong cybersecurity legal framework and two CERTs: CERT-UK mainly supports operators of critical infrastructure while GovCertUK supports government agencies. Other relevant bodies include the National Security Council and the Office of Cyber Security and Information Assurance.
The United Kingdom also has a well-developed system of public-private partnerships in which the private sector actively participates. This collaborative approach also is strongly supported by its cybersecurity strategy. The Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI), for example, organises sector-specific information exchanges, covering 14 sectors.
