UK private sector should join the government in its efforts aimed at tackling hacking activities, because the country's authorities cannot ensure complete security against the cyberattacks, UK Chancellor Philip Hammond said Tuesday.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Tuesday, Queen Elizabeth II is expected to officially open the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), an arm of the UK Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). The facility's purpose is to tackle cyberattacks against the UK infrastructure and to ensure security of the country's segment of Internet through both consultations of citizens and organizations and technological improvement.
"We will invite business to second up to 100 employees to come and work in the NCSC – allowing us to draw on the best and the brightest in industry – to test and challenge the government’s thinking… And for these people to then return to the private sector and draw on their experience at NCSC to drive change within industry. Because the government cannot protect businesses and the general public from the risks of cyber-attack," Hammond said as quoted by The Guardian newspaper, ahead of the NCSC opening ceremony.
The issue of cybersecurity has come under the spotlight in recent years after a number of officials from different states, such as including the United States, Italy and the United Kingdom reported about hacking attacks carried out against the infrastructure of governments and political organizations.
