The huge increase in digital technology has had an enormous impact on society as a whole. There is a critical reliance on the internet and with a surge in the number of connected devices, the internet has become a tool for terrorism, crime and exploitation. As a result, cyber security has become a key priority for the government as they attempt to protect against the ongoing threats that the digital revolution continues to throw up.
