According to the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), the UK government has had to fight off at least 188 major cyber-attacks in the last three months, with increased Russian aggression particularly noticeable.

Attacks from China and Russia have increased in frequency and many have threatened national security, according to former GCHQ cyber security boss, Ciaran Martin. He went on further to claim that these attacks are designed to “extract information on UK government policy on anything from energy to diplomacy to information on a particular sector.”

This increase in hacking attempts has been linked to “a step-change in Russian aggression in cyberspace.” Martin states, “Part of that step change has been a series of attacks on political institutions, political partners, and parliamentary organizations.”

This unsettling news comes just days after Chancellor Phillip Hammond announced that the NCSC had blocked 34,550 “potential attacks” on civilians and government agencies over the past 6 months. Not wasting any time, the Queen officially opened the National Cyber Security Centre yesterday, leaving many hopeful that the UK will soon be the safest place in the world to do business. The NCSC will inform, support, and educate the UK business community about emerging cyber threats and how to stay safe online in an effort to protect national security and their economic success.
