National Cyber Security Centre to be UK authority on information security


"The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is to be the UK's one-stop authority on infosec, based in London and led by GCHQ's Ciaran Martin.

Announced by Chancellor George Osborne in November 2015, it will focus on the financial sector as a top priority.

One of the NCSC's first tasks will be to work with the Bank of England to produce advice for the financial sector for managing cyber security effectively, the government announced.

‘This important work with the Bank of England is paramount to ensuring that businesses of all shapes and sizes understand the threats and what they can do to mitigate them,’ said Matthew Hancock, minister for the Cabinet Office.

‘We’ll do this by informing the entire business community and public sector about emerging threats, providing support when attacks happen and educating everyone on how best to stay safe online,’ he said.”
