The UK is approaching a milestone in its cyber security journey. The UK’s second National Cyber Security Strategy (NCSS), established in 2016 and underpinned by £1.9 billion of investment in transformational activities, ends in 2021.

After 2021, there is the possibility that cyber-related issues will be ‘mainstreamed’ within UK government and there may not be the same need for a dedicated and centrally-managed investment programme.
