Following the news that Joint Committee on the National Security Strategy has launched an inquiry into the UK’s cyber security. Dr Malcolm Murphy, Technology Director, Western Europe at Infoblox commented below.
Dr Malcolm Murphy, Technology Director, Western Europe at Infoblox:
“The government made it clear in 2016 that it is committed to improving the nation’s cybersecurity. Further to allocating a total budget of £1.9 billion for 2016 to 2021, the launch of the National Cyber Security Centre provides a new open door policy so that organisations have the necessary information to prevent and respond to cyber-attacks.
We would encourage as many businesses as possible to engage with the new inquiry into cyber security to ensure that the government’s resources are applied in the most effective way.
The private sector can’t expect the government to provide a fully secure cyber landscape – but should take the advice and resources that it offers to best secure their online environment. Collaborating with government and sharing threat information is just one way of helping to ensure the fruitfulness of this relationship.”
