UK Cyber Threat A Reality Deserving Additional Budgetary Input

Sophos : 19 October, 2010  (Technical Article)
Sophos comments on the UK Government's pledge to increase spending on mitigating the threat of cyber-terrorism in the country
Sophos wholeheartedly supports the Coalition Government's decision to invest in an enhanced national cyber security strategy, and UK citizens should feel reassured that the government is clearly taking the cyber threat seriously. The threat is a real one, not only for the UK but for governments around the world. In addition, cyber security must support the general economic development of the UK moving forward, making it more than just a question of defending against cyber terrorism but of also providing economic confidence and stability to the nation.

What is more, the budget cuts being announced this week are likely to result in an increase in online citizen transactions with the Government, putting our personal information and our businesses as well as our national security at greater risk. SophosLabs alone sees 60,000 new examples of malware every day, including many specifically targeted at government organisations. It is therefore imperative that the safeguards organisations put in place provide them with peace of mind that they won't be a target, and that the overall national cyber security strategy is watertight.
