Written Questions - 17th May 2018

I have today received answers to the following Written Parliamentary Questions:

Gerald Jones MP: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how many members of each branch of the armed services work at the National Cyber Security Centre.

Guto Bebb MP (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Defence): The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) was established in October 2016. Since then, the Ministry of Defence has developed a close collaborative relationship with the NCSC. Members of the Armed Forces are employed in a number of roles within the NCSC, but I am withholding further details as their disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the Ministry of Defence.

Gerald Jones MP: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how many members of each branch of the services are employed in the national offensive cyber programme.

Guto Bebb MP (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Defence): As a partnership between the Ministry of Defence and GCHQ, the National Offensive Cyber Programme is designed to harness the skills and talents of both organisations to deliver the tools, techniques and tradecraft required for the UK to establish a world-class offensive cyber capability. I am withholding specific information of the number of personnel from the armed forces employed in the programme as its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the Ministry of Defence.
