UK commits £1.9B to National Cyber Security Strategy, working with Microsoft and more
英国向国家网络安全战略提交1.9b,与微软合作

The recent rush of allegations against countries like Russia and China and their possible roles in?cyber attacks on countries like the U.S. have prompted a big move from the UK: the government said today that it plans to invest £1.9 billion ($2.3 billion) over the next five years in a new cyber defence plan, called the National Cyber Security Strategy, to prepare for?and fight back against cyber attacks in the future.

The investment, detailed by Chancellor Philip Hammond today in a speech at a Microsoft event in London (and?here), will also involve new?partnerships with private and public organisations (including Microsoft) to develop technology.

"Our new strategy, underpinned by £1.9 billion of support over five years and excellent partnerships with industry and academia, will allow us to take even greater steps to defend ourselves in cyber-space and to strike back when we are attacked," he said.

The size of the investment makes this the largest funding that the UK has earmarked for cyber security services, but it's not the only one: in October the Defence Secretary earmarked £265 million specifically for cyber vulnerability at the Ministry of Defence. They are also not sudden actions: today's news?comes nearly a year after the government first started to talk about how it needed to get more proactive in cyber security defence.

Today's news has a two-fold purpose, Hammond noted today in his presentation. It's in part about protecting the government, but also about protecting the wider UK digital economy, since cyber attacks would directly impact confidence in the latter.

"Tech is the future of the UK economy," he said in his speech at Microsoft's Future:Decoded event today, as he described a landscape where businesses and people will feel "safe" to do business.

Interestingly, while there will likely be many other companies involved, it seems that the biggest to get billing and a name check today is Microsoft.

"The mobile-first, cloud-first world holds enormous potential for organisations and individuals to generate new and exciting growth opportunities," said?Cindy Rose, UK CEO, Microsoft, in a statement. "However, there is a corresponding risk that as people increase their technology usage they also increase their exposure to cyber security threats. It is critical for all organisations to strengthen their core security hygiene as well as creating a pervasive security culture through education and awareness.

"All participants in the security ecosystem also need to work together to ensure everyone can trust the technology they use. The Chancellor’s announcement is the kind of initiative that the UK needs to protect British citizens from the growing threats we face. We welcome the government’s focus on tackling this significant issue which affects business and individuals alike."
