Over the last two decades the digital revolution has transformed the global society and cyber space has become as much a part of the everyday lives as the real world. However, despite cyber security receiving increased international attention, it is still playing a game of catch-up. The operations of most public and private sector organisations have become so deeply entangled with cyber space that making wholesale changes to their structures and processes to improve cyber security presents a major challenge. This white paper makes the argument for a new operational model to deliver a more effective approach to cyber security. This will enable the UK to play a significant international role in delivering a better and more secure cyber space for tomorrow's citizens and businesses.
