This publication was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

2 years on from the National Cyber Security Strategy, the government has published progress against its objectives and our forward plans.


2 years have passed since we first set out our goals in the National Cyber Security Strategy.

Much has been done towards delivering the 4 strategy objectives:

  • making the UK one of the most secure places in the world to do business in cyberspace
  • making the UK more resilient to cyber attack and better able to protect our interests in cyberspace
  • helping shape an open, vibrant and stable cyberspace that supports open societies
  • building the UK’s cyber security knowledge, skills and capability
