Economies, governments and people depend on their cyber infrastructure. Communications, banking, personal information and documents are all saved electronically and transmitted online. As a result cyber infrastructure needs to be secure.
The threat of cyber terrorism against individuals, business and governments is growing.
The number and sophistication of threats to our cyber infrastructure are increasing daily. Numerous reports cite the increasing number of security breaches and newspapers regularly run stories of lost data files, hacked bank accounts and stolen identities.
As a result the UK market for cyber security is estimated to be worth over £3.4 billion by 2017.
The UK government has defined 10 technical groups which comprise the key UK cyber capabilities:
- Security management
- Surveillance and reconnaissance
- Information operations
- Analytics and big data
- Social media analysis
- Transaction protection
- Trusted platforms
- Identity and authentication
- Investigation of offences
