A new Cyber Security Agency?

According to David Hencke (so it must be true) in today’s Guardian, the Government is planning to establish a new Cyber Security Agency and this will be announced in a wide-ranging statement, updating the National Security Strategy.

Last month I pointed out the radical approach being taken by the Obama Administration in the United States towards tackling the cyber threat.  As I told David Hencke, it will be welcome if the UK is now going to do something similar. 

However, whatever is proposed will have to be adequately resourced and will need to be properly linked to the national Police E-crime Unit and also to the national security apparatus.
