answer text <p>5G standards are still being ratified and the hardware and software that implements them is still being updated often during early commercial service. As a result, there are limited benefits in testing 5G equipment pre-deployment due to those changes and updates. The National Cyber Security Centre is focusing on those deployments and software releases in the UK which are most important.</p> more like this

answer text <p><strong></strong></p><p>In 2018 the Government put in place new powers under the Network and Information Security (NIS) Regulations which require the most significant operators in the energy, transport, health, water, and digital infrastructure sectors to manage cybersecurity risk, including from the supply chain. The Competent Authorities who regulate the critical national infrastructure operators in scope of NIS may inspect and potentially impose fines of up to £17 million. Outside of NIS any powers are sector specific. Expert technical support from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is provided to regulators and operators to ensure that cyber security risk is managed and mitigated in a consistent way across the UK’s CNI.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Active Cyber Defence (ACD) is a collection of services implemented by the NCSC that aim to protect the UK from the high-volume commodity attacks that affect people’s everyday lives. Mail Check is one of these services which enables an organisation to authenticate the email they send so that a receiver can determine if it is genuine or fake using Domain-based Message Authentication Protocol (DMARC). The NCSC plans to implement Mail Check for all 44 Central Government departments - in December 2018 95% were actively using Mail Check and 80% had adopted a basic DMARC policy.</p> more like this
