The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Cyber Security

The purpose of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Cyber Security is to raise awareness in Parliament of issues relating to Cyber Security by providing a forum for briefings, debate and discussion. The group will address developments in Cyber Security systems and techniques affecting consumers, businesses (including small business) and the role of cyber security in the smooth working of Defence, the UK economy and society as well as the Critical National Infrastructure. The group activity will be applicable to, security, identity, regulation and fraud, and it will provide information that promotes inclusion and understanding for non-specialists.

The post of APPG Chair is currently vacant: the group’s parliamentary liaison officer is Andrew Henderson.

The secretariat of the APPG on Cyber Security is provided by the Information Security Group, (ISG), at Royal Holloway, University of London.

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has issued guidance for political parties and their staff about how to detect "phishing" attacks. Full information can be seen on the NCSC website (630) 570-6573.
