Tories pledge to tighten UK’s cyber-security

Bookmark and Share

by Darren Allan

If the Conservatives come into power at the next election, they have promised to make efforts to tighten the country’s security against online threats.

The party has plans to introduce a Cyber Threat and Assessment Centre to analyse and respond to cyber-attacks.

The current government has promised to set up a Cyber Security Operations Centre, but it isn’t yet up and running.

And the Tories pointed out that even when it does get going, it’s only designed to analyse, not actually deal with any cyber-threats to the UK’s security.

The Conservatives are promising a more proactive stance to the online defence of the country.

  1. Hahaha what is it with the tories these days? Sounds like they’re trying to jam a fork in labour’s side by piggy-backing off the Google attacks. They obviously don’t get the benefit of hindsight. Of course you can offer good solutions now, that’s because you now have all the facts. If they’re only capable of offering solutions to problems that have already occured (as could most any of us, with a slight bit of intelligence), how do they expect to run a government.

  2. A waste of money, how about using that money instead to invest in the NHS/schools/debt/getting people back into work or one of the countless thousand other matters that are way more important than creating a facility to spy on its citizens….

    You guys lost my vote…
