Cyber security: the UK’s approach to exports

This strategy outlines the government's support to UK exporters in the information technology security market.



Cyber security, the protection of networked information systems, has grown rapidly in importance to governments around the world, likewise to national and international commerce.

The great opportunities that the internet is providing, in terms of communications, innovation and new freedoms, need to be protected from those who would disrupt and abuse the benefits that we have come to depend upon.

This strategy aims to position the UK as the partner of choice for those seeking cyber security solutions.

It sets out the UK’s strengths and capabilities in cyber security and describes how the government will provide immediate and practical support to UK exporters and to overseas customers who have requirements in this area.
