A commitment to improve international cyber security was made during four heads of states’ visit to the National Cyber Security Centre’s London headquarters yesterday (18 April).

GCHQ Director Jeremy Fleming hosted the Prime Ministers from the UK (Theresa May), Canada (Justin Trudeau), New Zealand (Jacinda Ardern) and Australia (Malcolm Turnbull) at Nova South, where the leaders were also briefed by NCSC Chief Executive Ciaran Martin.

The visit was part of the biennial Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), during which UK Prime Minister Theresa May announced up to £15million over the next three years to help Commonwealth countries strengthen their cyber security capabilities.

The four heads of state visited the National Cyber Security Centre for a high-level briefing on what the new wing of GCHQ is doing to make the UK the safest place to live and do business online.
