The NCSC’s Annual Review 2018 – tells the story of our second year, with interviews, testimonials, images and data that take you behind the scenes at the NCSC.
Two years have passed since the NCSC became fully operational and this review provides a snapshot of our work over the period 1 September 2017 to 31 August 2018 highlighting the progress we have made, the challenges overcome and the threats we face particularly the sustained threat from hostile actors. We outline our plans for the future and the successes we have achieved, in our second year, to deliver our ambition to make the UK the safest place to live and work online.
A note from CEO Ciaran Martin:
"I’m extremely proud that the NCSC is strengthening the UK’s defences against those who seek to harm us online.
“We are calling out unacceptable behaviour by hostile states and giving our businesses the specific information they need to defend themselves. We are improving our critical systems. We are helping to make using the Internet automatically safer.
“As we move into our third year, a major focus of our work will be providing every citizen with the tools they need to keep them safe online. I’m confident that the NCSC will continue to provide the best line of defence in the world to help the UK thrive in the digital age.”
