Britain’s £1.3bn cyber security programme might fail to meet its aims, financial watchdogs warn

You kow something has changed when a red top paper (reading age: under 10) carries reports about funding for cyber security…:

BRITAIN’S £1.3billion cyber security programme might fail to meet its aims, financial watchdogs warned yesterday.

They identified shortcomings in deciding how much money the five-year Government initiative needed before its launch in 2016.

This has led to concern about how computer attacks will be tackled after 2021, partly because proper funding has not been assessed, said the National Audit Office.

It added: “The Cabinet Office did not produce a business case for the programme first.”

But NAO chief Sir Amyas Morse said it was not certain the Government’s approach to better cyber security “will represent value for money” or be properly funded after 2021.
