The Telecoms Supply Chain Review published in July 2019, set out the government’s priorities for the security and resilience of future telecommunications networks, the final conclusions of which were announced in January 2020. The Review outlined the Government’s three priorities for the future of telecommunications: stronger cyber security practices; greater resilience in telecoms networks, and diversity in the market.

We are establishing an enhanced legislative and regulatory framework for telecoms security with new Telecoms Security Requirements at its core, stronger powers for Ofcom and national security powers for Government.
