Cyber security plays a crucial role in supporting economic growth and ensuring that Jersey continues to be a safe place to live and to do business.
Potential cyber security threats do not just affect data and systems in government and business, but also critical infrastructure, including emergency services, energy, health, transport and water.
To protect the Island, government will work with the private sector and the operators of our critical national infrastructure to incentivise investment in robust cyber security. Government itself must also be able to operate with confidence in the digital environment, be trusted to handle data and remain capable of protecting islanders’ privacy.
As society becomes more connected, we must also promote awareness of cyber security and ensure people know how to stay safe online. Government will expand and strengthen our network of international partners and, through Jersey’s leadership of the Small Island Nations Centre of Excellence for Research and Education (SINCERE), will continue to combat cybercrime.
