answer text <p>The consumer Internet of Things (IoT) sector is an exciting area of technology which is expected to grow significantly in the coming years as new products come to market. The exact level of this growth remains highly uncertain, with predictions ranging from 6.4 billion to 75 billion devices on the global market by 2020. This level of uncertainty makes the setting of a target unhelpful as it may limit our ambition.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Active Cyber Defence is a world-leading initiative implemented by the NCSC to protect against the vast majority of high volume but low sophistication cyber-attacks. The NCSC have made the MailCheck implementation available for free on the open source hosting site GitHub, so anyone who is minded can implement it themselves. We continue to work with others to expand services to those sectors that need them.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The Cyber Essentials scheme is largely self sustaining. The small cost to Government is mostly made up from proportions of time from members of staff within the National Cyber Security Centre and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. This includes governance, technical oversight, policy development and contract management.</p><p> </p><p>The original start-up costs included an injection of investment from the Government's National Cyber Security Programme in 2014 of £766,000, but this does not include the staffing costs from the three departments which originally developed the scheme: GCHQ, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, and the Cabinet Office.</p><p> </p><p>The financial model for delivery of the Cyber Essentials scheme involves Government overseeing the governance, technical oversight, policy development and contract management of five industry Accreditation Bodies. The Accreditation Bodies are responsible for marketing the scheme along with their Certification Bodies and providing the certificates to those wishing to achieve certification. The Accreditation Bodies and Certification Bodies charge a fee for the issuing of certificates and any related services provided.</p>

answer text <p>Ministers and officials hold regular discussions with Ofcom on a range of issues, including on the provision of children’s content.</p><p> </p><p>With the Digital Economy Act 2017, Ofcom was given new powers to publish criteria on commercial public service broadcasters’ provision of children’s programming and, if appropriate, to set related conditions. In response to this, in November 2017 Ofcom launched a review of children’s content. Ofcom has asked the public service broadcasters to develop and share their plans to address Ofcom’s concerns on children’s content and we look forward to Ofcom’s assessment of these plans in due course.</p><p> </p><p>The government is also providing direct support to the development of children’s content through the Contestable Fund pilot, which will provide up to £60 million to help stimulate the provision and plurality of UK-originated content for young audiences and radio.</p> more like this
