As privacy debates rage, the need for improved cybersecurity at the government level is still great. The UK is forming a unit specifically designed to help maintain their cyberdefense initiatives.
The Ministry of Defence is set to recruit hundreds of reservists as computer experts to work alongside regular forces in the creation of the new Joint Cyber Reserve Unit.
The new unit will also, if necessary, launch strikes in cyber space, Philip Hammond said.
Recruiting for reservists to join the unit will start next month.
