National Cyber Security Strategy

The Isle of Man National Cyber Security Strategy was published in May 2018.

To support the delivery of the Strategy, OCSIA will be the force behind a major transformative programme – the National Cyber Security and Information Assurance Programme – designed to test, evaluate and promote cyber security, cyber resilience and information assurance for all of the Isle of Man.

The Strategy sets out four Principles for action between 2018 and 2022:

1. Committed leadership by Government to achieve resilience

Through the leadership of the Chief Minister and the Chief Secretary, the Government will ensure the strategy is fully implemented, working together with key partners to provide a solution which meets our national needs.

2. Support for Critical National Infrastructure

Through the leadership of the Chief Minister and the Chief Secretary, the Government will ensure the strategy is fully implemented, working together with key partners to provide a solution which meets our national needs.

3. Collaboration with business to achieve prosperity

In delivering a cyber-resilient Island, it is essential that Government works alongside businesses and the public mutually and respectfully. The Government will deliver the services and support required whilst ensuring that the rights and values of all are respected. All activities will be undertaken as transparently as possible to ensure all solutions are fully understood.

4. Everyone playing a part in a progressive society

Cyber security and resilience is a shared responsibility. By working together we can ensure that businesses and residents are informed, supported, educated and have the appropriate measures to protect against attacks and have the support to call upon if an incident occurs. By sharing these responsibilities we help to create a society which is well-equipped to deal with the challenges of the future.
