The Government's new plan recognises the value of internet business and aims to increase security and protection of the digital environment. The strategy intends to promote partnerships with the private sector "...to help improve security, build our reputation as a safe place to do business online, and turn threats into opportunities." Proposals include the creation of a new national security hub to enable effective exchanges of information, a Cyber Crime Unit and a new single reporting system for financially motivated cybercrime. In addition, a voluntary code of conduct in partnership with ISPs is planned to assist in situations where computers have been compromised. This document will be of particular relevance to FE and HE staff responsible for IT security.
