An inter-Departmental Committee chaired by my Department oversees the implementation of the National Cyber Security Strategy 2019 - 2024. The Committee meets quarterly to review progress. Good progress is being made in delivering the 20 measures identified in the five-year strategy, with 6 measures completed by Q1 of this year. The majority of the other 14 measures are multi-year actions.

Delivery of the overall strategy is dependent on progress made with respect to the capacity review envisaged by the strategy. That capacity review, which is being conducted by expert international consultants, is due to report in the current quarter and will inform decisions to be taken on the future organisation and resourcing of the NCSC to enable it to continue to deliver on its mandate.
