Cyber and Information Security

The Cyber and Information Security function secures the Cabinet Office against cyber threats, and enables the secure delivery of the department’s mission. We do this by defining cyber security policies and standards for the organisation, delivering shared cyber security capabilities across the organisation, and supporting the organisation in understanding and governing cyber risk.

Our teams include…

  • Security Architecture: setting the standard for cyber security in the Cabinet Office
  • Cyber Defence: understanding, detecting and responding to threats and vulnerabilities impacting the Cabinet Office
  • Security Engineering: building and configuring the infrastructure and tools that enable cyber security
  • Security Risk: understanding and governing the Cabinet Office’s cyber security risk, and enabling effective decision making

We defend some of the UK’s most critical IT and digital services against sophisticated and targeted cyber threats.
