In 2016, the government’s National Cyber Security Strategy made a commitment to developing a cyber security professional body in the UK. Now, in this consultation, the government has set out potential structures and responsibilities this body would take on, in addition to consulting on the timeframes and budgets necessary to achieve this.

Following this, the Government is consulting on the specific design of the USO which would be set in secondary legislation.
