The Commons Defence Committee are warning the Government needs to take a more hands on approach to UK security.
Hearing evidence that entire combat units could be rendered completely dysfunctional by a cyber attack, they said details of contingency plans should be set out.
– The Commons Defence Committee
Given the inevitable inadequacy of the measures available to protect against a constantly changing and evolving threat ... it is not enough for the armed forces to do their best to prevent an effective attack.
In its response to this report the Government should set out details of the contingency plans it has in place should such an attack occur.
If it has none, it should say so - and urgently create some.
