The nation s first centre dedicated to combating cyber criminals opens next week, as the threat of online attacks continues to rise.
Intelligence bosses at the National Cyber Security Centre NCSC will target terrorists, hackers and online gangs from their base in central London.
The new organisation was created to both respond to attacks and reduce the risk of future threats, while also providing leadership in cyber security.
Our role is helping to make the UK the safest place to live and do business online said CEO of the centre Ciaran Martin.
So we re going to tackle the major threats from hostile states and criminal gangs.
But we re also going to work tirelessly to automatically protect people from those smaller scale and deeply damaging attacks that cause so much disruption and frustration.
