As part of the Government’s current review of cyber security incentives and regulations, Digital Minister Matt Warman has launched a call for evidence to seek views from across the industry.

The Review is looking at how Government can help organisations protect themselves online and aims to:

  • understand the barriers which prevent organisations from improving their cyber security;
  • understand the effectiveness of existing regulations and guidance including GDPR and NIS; and
  • develop a range of policy proposals to address any gaps.

As part of this, the call for evidence is seeking information and data on the barriers to taking action on cyber security, the information which would help organisations invest in cyber security, and what more organisations and Government could do to stimulate more effective cyber risk management.

Digital Minister Matt Warman said: “Good cyber security is an absolute necessity but recent research shows less than a fifth of company Boards understand the impact associated with cyber threat. I hope this review will encourage the industry to think about what government could do to help and what incentives might encourage firms and businesses to manage their cyber risk.

“By driving cyber security improvements across the whole economy we can help make the UK the safest place to live and do business online.”

Input is encouraged from all types of organisations in all sectors, especially organisations that influence and set market expectations, such as membership bodies, consultancies, auditors, insurers, investors, corporate and risk governance bodies, regulators and professional associations.

The call for evidence is open until Friday 20 December 2019 and responses can be made here.
