Francis Maude, Minister for the Cabinet Office, hosted an event at the Institute for Chartered Accountants of England and Wales (ICAEW) for industry, academia and government leaders to highlight how the UK is building skills to boost the growing cyber security sector in the UK.

The event marks the third anniversary of the UK’s Cyber Security Strategy, and follows a report to parliament on progress and forward plans to make the UK one of the safest places to do business online.

Increasing the number of people with the right cyber skills is vital for both government and industry as we collectively face the reality of cyber threats. The government’s work to improve the Uk’s cyber security is led by the Cabinet Office, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and GCHQ.
