At CYBERUK 2018, the Government's flagship event for cyber security in the UK, Director GCHQ, Jeremy Fleming, gave his first public speech since taking office last year. The speech covered: 

  • How our adversaries are proactively using technology to further their cause;
  • How what we face constantly changes and becomes more complex; and
  • How we in GCHQ are changing operationally, technologically, and culturally, to keep our country safe.

To illustrate that, the Director explained some of the operational steps that GCHQ has taken in recent years, the impact working in partnership has, and the steps we are taking to recruit the type of people that we need to succeed now and in the future.
