The Cabinet Office has today confirmed that Sharon Barber has been appointed as co-Chair of the NCAB. Sharon brings a wealth of experience from her role as Chief Information Officer at Lloyds Banking Group.
The National Cyber Advisory Board is one of the key ‘whole of society’ commitments made in the National Cyber Strategy 2022 which launched in December.
Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and lead Cyber Minister, Steve Barclay, said:
I’m delighted to appoint Sharon Barber as co-chair and look forward to her bringing her expertise and experience from industry to the National Cyber Advisory Board, which is a crucial part of the successful delivery of our National Cyber Strategy.
We are investing £2.6billion in cyber over the next three years and that funding will underpin our approach to dealing collaboratively with industry, universities, schools and individual citizens to work with us to tackle the cyber challenges ahead.
Newly-appointed NCAB co-Chair Sharon Barber said:
The Government has set out an ambitious strategy – it’s now up to us to join together, harnessing the rich diversity of the UKs abilities across academia, government and industry to move into execution. We will be more successful as a collective.
