Digital Competition: The UK’s Cyber Response to Online and Real-world Threats

— Panellists examine the UK’s approach to protecting the digital homeland and transforming defence for the cyber age.

Vaccine hacking, foreign interference in elections, threats to critical infrastructure, and ransomware attacks are critical cyber threats that regularly make international headlines. This kind of hybrid warfare in the ‘grey zone’, some of it state-sponsored, invariably draws on cyber capabilities and is a serious risk to national security with tactics that continually change to exploit vulnerabilities.

Over several years, GCHQ and the Ministry of Defence have been developing a full range of cyber capabilities. But how can governments keep up with the ever-changing means of digital conflict?

This webinar examines the UK’s approach to protecting the digital homeland and transforming defence for the cyber age.

  • How is the new National Cyber Force important to achieving those outcomes?

  • How can the UK secure its ‘critical assets’ from cyber threats?

  • What capabilities need to be developed in order to meet the challenges posed by adversaries?

  • Where are the biggest threats coming from?

  • How can powerful tools developed to protect the UK and other nations be used responsibly?
