In a concerted effort to bolster cybersecurity measures, the UK government is joining forces with app developers, taking significant strides towards ensuring the UK’s resilience in the digital age.
The National Cyber Strategy in a nutshell
As a pivotal component of the government’s National Cyber Strategy, the Department for Science, Innovation, and Technology (DSIT) is spearheading an approach aimed at elevating the standards of cybersecurity in digital services and consumer technologies.
To achieve this goal, DSIT has engaged the services of Pye Tait Consulting, an esteemed independent research agency, to spearhead research initiatives. The primary objective of this research is to gain comprehensive insights into the current security and privacy practices adopted by app developers. Of particular interest is understanding the impact and awareness surrounding recent voluntary government initiatives within this industry.
For those eager to contribute their perspectives and insights to this crucial endeavour, two avenues are available. Interested parties can either participate in the online survey or request a callback from a dedicated member of the Pye Tait team. This collaborative effort marks a significant stride forward in fortifying the nation’s cybersecurity infrastructure and ensuring that digital services and technologies meet rigorous cybersecurity standards.
