Providing a focal point for UK Cyber Security Expertise
Cyber Security provides a focal point for UK Cyber Security expertise, to identify challenges and develop responses, influence UK investment strategy and government policy, and help improve the UK security baseline.
Cyber Security, originally set up as a standalone KTN in 2005, and run by QinetiQ, provides a focal point for UK Cyber Security expertise, to identify challenges and develop responses, influence UK investment strategy and government policy, accelerate innovation and education, harness and promote UK capability internationally and help improve the UK security baseline.
The UK possesses a wealth of cyber security expertise, within industry, academia and government, but the effort is fragmented and focused on point solutions by technologies and sectors. Only by joining together can we understand the breadth and depth of the cyber security challenge essential to planning effective protection and response. We aim to provide a UK-wide focus to address challenges holistically; identifying the gaps in the work being undertaken across the community and planning how to bridge them; unifying the pool of UK expertise in a manner that amplifies the efforts of the community and makes the results more accessible to all.
