Mr Philip Hammond - Foreign and Commonwealth Office

I have today laid before both Houses a paper on the rights and obligations arising under EU law as a result of UK membership of the EU. This paper represents the second and final part of the report that the Government has published to meet the requirement of section 7(1) of the European Union Referendum Act 2015. The first part, "Alternatives to membership: possible models for the United Kingdom outside the European Union", was published on 2 March 2016. Both parts of the report are now available to read together on the GOV.UK website.

Matthew Hancock - Cabinet Office

In 2010, the National Security Strategy identified cyber as a Tier 1 threat to the UK. In November 2011, we published the UK National Cyber Security Strategy.

From 2011 to 2016, the Government funded a 860 million National Cyber Security Programme to deliver the strategys vision of a vibrant, resilient and secure cyberspace. The objectives of this Programme aimed to:

  1. Make the UK one of the most secure places in the world to do business in cyberspace.
  2. Make the UK more resilient to cyber attack and better able to protect our interests in cyberspace
  3. Help shape an open, vibrant and stable cyberspace that supports open societies
  4. Build the UKs cyber security knowledge, skills and capability.

We have presented regular reports to Parliament on progress against the Strategys objectives. Today I am publishing the final report for the Programme.

The report summarises progress during 2015/16 against the Strategys objectives, reviews the impact of the Programme since it was established, and looks ahead to the new 2016 National Cyber Security Strategy and Programme.

There has been significant progress towards reaching these goals. As a result of Programme initiatives:

  • We have enhanced national capabilities to protect and defend ourselves against those who would do us harm.
  • Businesses of all sizes and sectors are now better protected.
  • We have a greater share of the international cyber security market.
  • Our online government services are increasingly secure.
  • We are actively tackling cyber crime.
  • We are playing a leading role in international cyber security.
  • We are actively building our cyber skills and knowledge.

In partnership with business, the academic community and international partners, we have built a solid foundation for the future. We are grateful to partners for their collaboration and efforts. The Government cannot deliver these goals on its own.

Against a backdrop of increased threats we have improved the UKs effort to enhance cyber security. But there is more to do. The 2015 National Security Strategy confirmed that cyber remains a Tier 1 threat to the UKs economic and national security. As a result, the Government will publish a new National Cyber Security Strategy this year, which will define our vision and ambition for the future. The Government will further increase investment in cyber security to 1.9 billion over the next five years.

We will continue to report progress to Parliament.
