star this property answer text <p>Cyber security, including cyber crime, is a top priority threat to national security.<strong> </strong>This is why the National Cyber Security Strategy 2016-2021 is supported by £1.9billion of transformational investment. We have boosted the capabilities of the National Crime Agency’s National Cyber Crime Unit by increasing their ability to investigate the most serious cyber crime, and we are continuing to invest in the cyber teams within each of the Regional Organised Crime Units across England and Wales.</p><p>We have also established the National Cyber Security Centre which manages national cyber security incidents, carries out real-time threat analysis and provides tailored sectoral advice. We have invested in regional cyber crime prevention coordinators, who engage with SME’s and the public to provide bespoke cyber security advice based on the latest technical understanding from the National Cyber Security Centre.</p><p>Driving up cyber knowledge and expertise at the local policing level is also extremely important. The College of Policing provides a range of courses for police officers and staff on cyber crime. The College are also working on behalf of the Home Office to create the Cyber Digital Career Pathways project. This project will create a Cyber Digital Investigation Profession across all of law enforcement, providing a career pathway and professional certification for Cyber Digital Investigation Professionals.</p><p>The Home Office delivers the Government’s Cyber Aware campaign which encourages the public and small businesses to adopt simple behaviours which will help protect them against the majority of cyber threats. Most recent activity to educate the public on the cyber threat and how they can protect themselves includes the #OneReset campaign to encourage greater use of a strong and separate password for primary email accounts, and, launching on 1 March 2018, a new research report entitled “<em>A Call to Action: The Cyber Aware Perception Gap”</em>, which outlines the need for, and benefit of, a collaborative effort to increase the adoption of cyber secure behaviour.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Home Office is committed to not placing unnecessary bureaucratic burdens on the police and has scrapped all central targets. However, Chief Constables are under a duty to comply with the Strategic Policing Requirement (SPR). The SPR provides a framework for consistent, collective decision making by forces, but leaves the specifics of how this should be achieved to Chief Constables.</p><p>The Strategic Policing Requirements describes organised crime, including large scale cyber crime, as a national threat that Chief Constables and Police and Crime Commissioners are expected to plan and prepare, together or in support of national arrangements, to address these threats.</p><p>The National Police Chiefs’ Council has oversight of force contributions to the SPR. Police and Crime Commissioners are required to hold Chief Constables to account for the delivery of the SPR and to have regard to the SPR when producing their police and crime plans. The Home Office also continue to support forces in building professional responsibility through the College of Policing; and returning accountability to the public through Police and Crime Commissioners.</p><p>The 2015 National Security Strategy confirmed that cyber remains a top threat to the UK’s economic and national security. The UK’s future security and prosperity depends on our ability to safeguard digital information, data and networks at home and abroad. The cyber threats we face continue to grow in scale and sophistication. This is why the National Cyber Security Strategy 2016-2021 is supported by £1.9billion of transformational investment.</p><p>Through the National Cyber Security Programme, we invested over £90 million under the 2010-15 Parliament to bolster the law enforcement response. The Government will continue to invest in law enforcement capabilities at the national, regional and local levels to ensure delivery agencies have the capacity to deal with the increasing volume and sophistication of cyber crime. We are increasing the capabilities of the National Crime Agency’s National Cyber Crime Unit by increasing their ability to investigate the most serious cyber crime.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In February this year the Government launched the Joint Fraud Taskforce, a partnership of government, law enforcement and the banks to collectively tackle fraud. The Taskforce is looking at new ways to ensure individuals have the tools and knowledge to protect themselves from fraudsters. A Joint Fraud Taskforce partner, Financial Fraud Action UK, recently launched a nation-wide fraud prevention campaign ‘Take 5’ which advises that individuals take five minutes to consider what they are being asked to do, especially if being pressured to take an unusual course of action such as transferring funds to an unknown individual.</p><p>The Government’s Cyber Aware campaign aims to help small business and individuals protect themselves from cyber criminals by adopting simple secure online behaviours such as having a strong password and always downloading the latest software updates. Cyber Aware works with a range of public and private sector partners to embed cyber security advice into a range of every day touch points, including Get Safe Online, whose remit is to help individuals and small businesses safeguard themselves against fraud and other online data threats.</p><p>The Home Office has also invested in new IT for the Action Fraud / National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) capability. Benefits of the new system will include an improved reporting system and better information for victims as well as more disseminations of crime packages to forces, and better identification of vulnerable victims.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Cyber Essentials scheme sets out the basic technical controls which all organisations relying on the internet should have in place to prevent common online attacks. The scheme requires up-to-date malware protection software to be installed on all internet-connected computers: this is designed to detect and disable the malicious software which an organisation might be exposed to via phishing attacks, and prevent users making connections to malicious websites on the internet.</p><p> </p><p>Cyber Essentials is a technical scheme and staff awareness training is therefore out of scope; however other pieces of guidance from the Government do recommend this. For example, the ‘10 Steps to Cyber Security’, the Government’s key piece of advice for organisations on managing cyber risk, sets out the importance of user education and awareness.</p><p> </p><p>The Government offers a range of free online cyber security training programmes at https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/cyber-security-training-for-business. In addition, the National Cyber Security Centre recently published a blog about phishing and user training, which explains that phishing is best tackled by implementing good technical defences and combining these with reasonable levels of user awareness, education and training: https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/blog-post/im-gonna-stop-you-little-phishie</p>
