NCC Group supports new report on the UK’s Critical National Infrastructure

Global cyber security and risk mitigation expert, NCC Group, has welcomed a report into the Cyber Security of the UK’s Critical National Infrastructure (CNI). Published by the Joint Committee on the National Security Strategy, the report provides an assessment of current cyber security challenges faced by the UK’s CNI and outlines how these can be addressed.

The team at NCC Group contributed extensively to this report through both oral and written evidence, and this input is referenced throughout.

Ollie Whitehouse, global CTO at NCC Group, said: “We’re delighted to have been able to contribute significantly to this report, which provides a crucial, in-depth reflection of the current challenges facing the UK’s CNI, and the changes that need to be made to drive the sector forward.

“It’s very encouraging to see a focus on the need for agility in a rapidly changing threat landscape, as well as calls to firmly embed cyber risk management into business processes. This report sets out realistic solutions that would no doubt create a robust culture of security across the sector – in particular, calls to implement threat and intelligence-led testing, and put in place corporate reporting requirements on cyber security.

“It’s now vital to ensure that relevant legislation, such as the Computer Misuse Act, is continuously assessed and kept up-to-date, and that political leadership and accountability when it comes to the UK’s CNI remains a priority. Continuous investment is also crucial – over the last couple of years, the work of the NCSC has started to make a dent, but financial support needs to continue well into the future in order to progress this further and truly transform the security posture of the UK’s CNI.”
