About The Team
Parliament is a historic institution steeped in tradition which has ambitious digital aspirations. The cyber threat to Parliament is a challenging one to meet, balancing security and transparency whilst protecting some very high-profile targets. The cyber function has to constantly evolve with the needs of the UK public and is undergoing significant change in how it operates.
The Cyber team must remain switched on to geopolitical and domestic activity in order to protect its people, data and technology. The team is responsible for operational cyber security including logging and monitoring, incident response, threat and vulnerability management, intelligence-led penetration testing, development of cyber policies and standards, security architecture, forensic investigations and risk management.
UK Parliament is steeped in history and tradition. It is an important part of UK life and we need to ensure as many people as possible can engage with its work.
