The National Security Risk Assessment is designed to support a collective understanding of the most significant risks facing the UK and our interests overseas. It is used to inform the National Security Strategy and Strategic Defence and Security Review and considers risks over a five year timeframe. In 2015, international military conflict was assessed to be a Tier One and this continues to be the case, taking into account both the likelihood and impact of potential scenarios.
