Joint Committee on the National Security Strategy
Reports and Government Response published.
Note: Table 1 in the report inadvertently omitted some departments when referencing a written evidence source (CNI0013).
The Government's 2016 cyber security strategy states that the cyber security of the UK’s critical national infrastructure (CNI)—from the physical infrastructure to the digital networks and data—is critical, because a successful attack "would have the severest impact on the country’s national security". Yet the strategy also acknowledges that across many priority sectors "cyber risk is still not properly understood or managed, even as the threat continues to diversify and increase". An additional challenge to Government is that most of the UK's CNI is owned and operated by the private sector.
The Joint Committee is holding an inquiry into the Government's approach to ensuring the cyber security of UK critical national infrastructure, exploring in particular how it works together with private-sector operators and industry regulators in doing so.
