Commenting on the Bank of England report into cyber resilience, Richard Horne, cyber security partner, PwC, said:

“The Government's initiative in highlighting the risks to critical national infrastructure from digital attacks is welcome. Providers of critical infrastructure need to have strong cyber security defences to match the growing threats that we see. Industry and regulators need to work together not just to raise that capability but also to understand and manage the increasing levels of connectivity and interdependence between organisations. Communication and cooperation are critical and, as today's report on the Waking Shark 2 exercise shows, the CISP (Cyber security Information Sharing Partnership) platform can play an increasingly important role in helping to identify and communicate threats to industry sectors and also facilitate a coordinated response in times of crisis.”
