Cyber Security Subgroup

As cyber security continues to be a priority issue, and as Government publicly confirms a more interventionist “active cyber defence” approach that could have a significant impact on members, ISPA has set up a dedicated Cyber Security Working Group to coordinate, plan and action our work.

Cyber security has been an ISPA priority for many years with work coordinated via the Online Harms Subgroup. In recognition of how essential this has become, we have established a working group to ramp up our action, drawing upon the expertise within the membership.

A particular interest of the working group are the new Telecoms Security Requirements being introduced by the Government through the Telecoms Security Bill.
