The Government of Jersey has confirmed that it is developing a cyber security strategy based on the findings of a number of internal audits and an independent review conducted by intelligence sector experts.
Cyber security comprises potential threats not just to areas such as data and systems in government and business, but also to the island's critical infrastructure. The reviews that will form the basis of the Government of Jersey's forthcoming strategy have examined the island's current cyber resilience; assessed the main risks that Jersey faces; identified cyber security priorities; and considered approaches to enhancing the island's cyber resilience.
The Government of Jersey said it is now building on the findings and recommendations of these reviews to develop a new, all-encompassing cyber security strategy. The Assistant Chief Minister, Senator Philip Ozouf, said: "The new cyber security strategy will play a pivotal role in supporting economic growth and ensuring that Jersey continues to be a safe place to live and to do business."
An announcement on the strategy will be delivered next year.
