'Tier 1 national priority' wasn't ready in time

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

The UK government's Cyber Security Strategy publication for this year is now expected in mid-October, after being delayed until after the party conference season.

The Minister for Cyber Security, Francis Maude, was due to make a parliamentary statement on the strategy before the end of the month, but Thursday is the last day that parliament is in session before the MPs head off to their party conferences.

The strategy "was not quite ready for publication" in time, a Cabinet Office spokesman said, adding that it would be published as soon as possible after parliament returns at the start of October.

"As a tier 1 national security priority, it needs to be announced in parliament," stated the Cabinet Office. ®
