CPNI in Context

A range of government policies impact the work of CPNI, including:

National Security Strategy

The UK Government's National Security Strategy sets out the strategic objectives to ensure the UK's security and resilience.


National Risk Register

The most significant emergencies that the UK and its citizens could face over the next five years are monitored by government through the National Risk Assessment (NRA). This is a confidential assessment that is conducted annually, drawing on expertise from a wide range of departments and agencies of government. The National Risk Register (NRR) is the public version.


Counter Terrorism Strategy

CONTEST is the UK Government's counter terrorism strategy and aims to reduce the risk from international terrorism so people can go about their daily business. Developing and delivering CONTEST involves numerous stakeholders, including government departments, the emergency services, voluntary organisations, the business sector and overseas partners. The strategy is divided into four principal strands: Prevent, Pursue, Protect and Prepare. CPNI's work falls within the Protect strand which focusses on reducing the vulnerability of the UK and UK interests overseas to a terrorist attack.

Cyber security advice for protecting CNI IT networks, data and systems from cyber-attack is now the responsibility of the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). CPNI and NCSC work in partnership to ensure a holistic approach to protective security is delivered.
