To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, what plans the National Cyber Security Centre has to help universities (a) fight organised cyber-crime and (b) further prevent a cyber-attack.

Answer (Caroline Nokes)

We launched our five year National Cyber Security Strategy in 2016 to ensure that the UK has the right capability and capacity to defend our people, businesses, and assets; deter our adversaries; and develop the skills and capabilities we need across all sectors.

The NCSC regularly publishes advice and guidance for securing organisations’ networks operating in the UK, including universities, and it works closely with law enforcement partners to tackle all forms of cyber-crime.
