The UK has signed the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) new set of principles on Cyber Resilience.

It joins over 70 companies and government bodies across 15 sectors and 25 countries committed to ensuring secure, resilient digital global networks.

Francis Maude, Minister for Cyber Security, said: “Cyber security is a shared, global challenge – our companies operate in a global marketplace. The cyber threat knows no geographical boundaries and it matters that those we connect to are secure as well. In the UK we have put in place a transformative National Cyber Security Programme which hinges on a real and meaningful partnership with industry.”

Last October the Government announced the creation of a new global Centre for Capacity Building that will research cyber security initiatives across the globe to get the best results in tackling cybercrime and other cyber threats.
