The Government released a report today launching a new strategy to support the export of UK cybersecurity technologies/businesses. The strategy is designed to:
- Promote the UK’s world-leading expertise and increase export growth in the security sector
- Strengthen defence capabilities in the UK and allied countries
- Support the ongoing work of the 2016 National Cyber Security Strategy
- Improve collaboration between Government and industry
Andy Kays, CTO at Redscan:
“It’s great to see the Government acknowledge the strength of the UK cybersecurity sector. Against a backdrop of ever-evolving threats, growing digital transformation and regulatory pressures, there has never been such global demand for effective cybersecurity products and services. UK companies are leading the way in innovation across the security industry and any initiate that helps to improve the visibility of our products and services on the international stage is certainly welcome.
“To effectively manage cybersecurity risk, all businesses are having to contend with more challenges than ever, such as the growing attack surface and need to quickly detect and respond to threats.
“In a fast-moving and complex environment, businesses need more help to understand and implement the best and most appropriate solutions available, as well as obtain optimal value from them. The UK is at the forefront of efforts to tackle cybercrime and our continued development of new products and services is vital to helping organisations around the world prevent, detect and respond to the latest threats.”
