Description: The National Cyber Security Programme (NCSP) was put in place as a consequence of the Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR), with a budget of £650 million over 4 years. Its aim is to deliver a transformative programme to give the UK a strategic advantage in cyber security and resilience. The programme is managed by the Office of Cyber Security and Information Assurance (OCSIA) in the Cabinet Office. With the agreement of Treasury as part of the latest Spending Review, the programme has been extended for a fifth year to 2015-16, with an additional £210m funding.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: The programme devised a benefits management framework in 2013/14, and its successful implementation was reflected in the upgraded delivery confidence assessment. Prior to this, the programme had made good progress on developing its governance and addressing some of the skills gaps in the programme team. The programme conducted a comprehensive health-check in the second half of 2013-14, to provide assurance that the programme was still closely aligned to its strategic objectives, and to highlight potential gaps and areas where potential effort should be directed.
Start date: 2011-04-01
End date: 2016-04-01
Schedule text: Delivery in 2013/14 went largely according to plan, with all variation managed within the programme's governance, reflecting the ability of the programme to reallocate resources when required. After a mid-year review, it was possible to prioritise the implementation of new initiatives and the acceleration of other programme deliverables, in response to slippage elsewhere.
