UK government to spend £1bn on cybersecurity

“According to a report in The Register, the money will be used to acquire active defense capabilities against cyber attacks on government systems and critical civilian infrastructure, such as utility grids and the National Health Service.

This news follows a major address earlier this week by Ian Lobban, the director of the UK’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), on cybersecurity policy. In a speech to the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), Lobban stressed that cybersecurity is not just a defense issue but it goes to the ‘heart of our economic well-being and national interest’.”
