Call for evidence description

The government is working to improve cyber resilience across the UK economy and ensure businesses and organisations have the tools and support to protect themselves against cyber threats.

The vast majority of organisations in the UK rely on digital technologies to conduct business operations. As the digital economy grows, so too do cyber threats, which are now a principal risk to many companies. The government is therefore publishing this draft Cyber Governance Code of Practice to help businesses and organisations manage the cyber risks they face.

The Code sets out the critical governance areas directors need to tackle in order to protect their organisations. The Code is designed to be simple to use, with the relevant information all in one place. It is for organisations of all sizes.

The government is seeking views on the draft Code and invites responses by 11:59pm on Tuesday 19 March 2024.
