Industry 100 is the NCSC’s principal initiative to facilitate close collaboration with the best and most diverse minds from outside the organisation.

As the government’s lead technical authority on cyber security, our ambition is to make the UK the safest place to live and do business online. However, we cannot do this alone. Every citizen, business and government department have a part to play.

Industry 100 brings together public and private sector talent to challenge thinking, test innovative ideas and enable greater understanding on cyber security – one of the most important issues of our time.

By working together, we are bringing industry and government expertise together in a way that helps us all learn lessons, identify systematic vulnerabilities and reduce the future impact of cyber attacks.

A target has been set to work with at least 100 industry professionals across as many of the NCSC teams as possible. We are making strong progress towards this target and are constantly improving the process to identify, promote and fill roles at the NCSC. 

As the initiative approaches its second year, the NCSC is offering organisations to meet with the Industry 100 team to learn more the work being done and how to get involved. You can contact for more information, or if you have any questions.
