    Surely the UK shouldn't be left at risk to the peripatetic serried ranks of global Cyber warrior forces for a moment longer. Particularly not an almost two month delay because of party conferences?

    Good grief.


    'Tier 1 national priority' wasn't ready in time

    I see.

    I guess we just sit here then, twiddling our fingers, hoping UK CNI doesn't get screwed over by Russian/Chinese/American/Greek/Turkish cybercriminals?

    ...that this isn't a case of keeping the details out of the public eye until after Conference Season, based on the argument that "we'll be furious when we find out and the Minister will be embarrassed"?

    No rush

    Hey, it's only a 'Strategy' publication. It means nothing at all, just a bit of paper with wish-lists on it.

    Maude will feel better, the Tories say they are 'doing something' and by the time they get to try and implement something there won't be any coppers left to nick anyone.

    Maybe HM.Gove will farm the work out to people who really understand the law and go for the usual suspects with threatening letters to the least able individuals.
