'Tier 1 national priority' wasn't ready in time

I see.

I guess we just sit here then, twiddling our fingers, hoping UK CNI doesn't get screwed over by Russian/Chinese/American/Greek/Turkish cybercriminals?

Cyber Security

Surely the UK shouldn't be left at risk to the peripatetic serried ranks of global Cyber warrior forces for a moment longer. Particularly not an almost two month delay because of party conferences?

Good grief.

So what? It's not as if we don't have one already - this is just the updated version. We will muddle through somehow on last year's strategy

No rush

Hey, it's only a 'Strategy' publication. It means nothing at all, just a bit of paper with wish-lists on it.

Maybe HM.Gove will farm the work out to people who really understand the law and go for the usual suspects with threatening letters to the least able individuals.
