NCSC reports on success of Active Cyber Defence programme

Wednesday 7 February 2018 | 17:34 CET | News
The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has published the first data and related analysis of the UK's Active Cyber Defence programme. The report, 'Active Cyber Defence - One Year On', details the results of the Government's interventionist approach to tackling cyber crime. The report shows that the NCSC-led initiatives have detected and prevented millions of online commodity attacks against the UK, resulting in the UK's share of global phishing attacks to fall significantly.
