Commenting on the publication of the Government’s Cyber Security Strategy, and the creation of a Cyber Security Operations Centre based in Cheltenham, Gareth Elliott, Senior Policy Adviser at the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), said: 

"Almost three-quarters of companies feel there should be a national body set up to deal with the issue of e-crime, so the establishment of a new Cyber Security Operations Centre is the right move.  

 “With more companies reporting computer related fraud and data theft than ever before, the business community is pleased to see the Government giving the issue some serious attention.”
