DCMS works to protect and promote the UK’s digital interests. We want to ensure the UK continues to be a leading responsible and democratic cyber power, with a secure digital economy.
Through the National Cyber Strategy we are enhancing the nation’s cyber skills, making sure UK businesses, organisations and infrastructure are secure and resilient, ensuring the UK cyber sector is sustainable, innovative and competitive, and ensuring technology is designed in a secure way.
Our work supports and delivers objectives within the government’s the £2.6 billion 2022 National Cyber Strategy and DCMS’s Top 10 Tech Priorities. It is also part of the Integrated Review of defence, security & foreign policy, which describes how technology and science are moving ever closer to the heart of UK security.
The £2.6 billion 2022 National Cyber Strategy has five pillars:
Strengthening the UK’s cyber ecosystem
Building a resilient and prosperous digital UK
Taking the lead in the technologies vital to cyber power
Promoting a free, open, peaceful & secure cyberspace
Detecting, disrupting & detering adversaries
