Private Sector Cooperation at Heart Of UK Cyber Security Strategy

BAE Systems Applied Intelligence : 28 November, 2011  (Technical Article)
BAE Systems Detica comments on the shift of emphasis created within the UK Government's Cyber Security Strategy document
Private Sector Cooperation at Heart Of UK Cyber Security Strategy
Following the UK Government’s cyber security strategy announcement, BAE Systems Detica has commented on the implications for both public and private sector.  The new strategy claims to “herald a new era of unprecedented cooperation between the Government and the private sector on cyber security,” and is hot on the heels of the UK government classing cyber threats as a tier 1 threat, and pledging £650 million to tackle the issue.

Martin Sutherland, Managing Director of BAE Systems Detica comments: “What the Government's UK Cyber Security Strategy clearly shows is that there has been a really important shift in emphasis surrounding the role of the private sector in improving cyber security.

“We believe this shift of emphasis accurately reflects the fact that our private sector companies are on the front line facing increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks against our common interests.

“With the Strategy very much aligning the country's economic prosperity with national security, the key to success will be ensuring that private companies see it as beneficial to their business to work in partnership with Government. The question is whether they will do this voluntarily, or whether the Government finds, in addition, that it needs to provide some incentive for this to happen.

“In a nutshell, cyber security has become about minimising the harmful effects of cyber attacks and maximising the economic opportunities that the reduction of the threat would bring.

“This is an attractive vision, but no one should underestimate either the scale of the ambition or the complexities it raises. Things now need to happen quickly – this is not a theoretical debate. Cyber attacks are here and now, occurring on a daily basis and the impact is very real”.
