Cyber security and economic growth: call for views


The government sees the potential for cyber security to drive growth across all sectors of the UK economy. To support this potential, the government has asked the Rt Hon Stephen McPartland MP to conduct an independent review into cyber security as an enabler of economic growth.

To inform this work, the review is seeking views and evidence from across all sectors of the economy and other interested parties. 

Revenue generated by the UK cyber security sector has nearly doubled from £5.7 billion in 2018 to over £10.5 billion in 2023, with an estimated 20,000 additional jobs created.

The sector has huge potential for further significant growth in revenue and employment, so the review is seeking views on how to help make this happen. The review would be pleased to hear your ideas for boosting cyber security and economic growth. 

The call for views is open until Thursday 28 March 2024.
