Estrategia de ciberseguridad del Reino Unido (Noviembre 2011)
The government’s new Cyber Security Strategy was published on 25 November.
The government has released its UK Cyber Security Strategy .
The document describes the current state of Internet threats, and key areas which need to be addressed. Primarily it focuses on better resourcing for the computer crime authorities, improving communication between government and the private sector, and investing in national defences and critical infrastructure against cybercriminal attack to raise awareness.
Three key areas which are:
• Finance – it promises to spend £650 million over four years on the National Cyber Security Programme, with the 'Single Intelligence Account' receiving the most funding (MI5, MI6, and GCHQ being the primary benefactors within this).
• Public and private sector collaboration - the sharing of threat intelligence
• Awareness – as attacks such as fake anti-virus continue to run rife (currently 7th in top 200 malware samples seen this month), proposals such as using kitemarks and boosting the GetSafeOnline website are being put forward.
A joint public/private sector cyber security 'hub' for exchanging cyber threat and response information will begin in pilot this December with five business sectors – defence, telecoms, finance, pharmaceuticals and energy.
Action Fraud, the national fraud reporting and advice centre run by the National Fraud Authority will become the central portal for businesses and the public to make it easier to report financially motivated cyber crime.
