GCHQ to take hub role in UK cybersecurity
By Jack Clark, ZDNet UK, 25 November, 2011 17:32
The UK's intelligence agency GCHQ will become a main port of call for businesses dealing with cyberattacks, under the government's new cybersecurity strategy revealed on Friday.
The Cheltenham-based agency will get an infusion of hundreds of millions of pounds to fund its larger role in the UK's cyber-defence, Cabinet Office minister Francis Maude said in announcing the The UK Cyber Security Strategy (PDF). It will have a key role in a new cybersecurity 'hub' that will be set up as a brokerage for the public and private sectors to exchange information about threats and technologies.
