The cyber action plan for Wales references how digital has become essential in our lives.

The cyber action plan for Wales references how digital has become essential in our lives. We use it for learning, working, getting public services and doing business. But digital also makes us more vulnerable to cyber-attacks that are frequent and complex. We live in a time where this threat changes so fast, we have to expect cyber-attacks to happen. Our businesses, organisations and public services need to not only lower the risks but to get ready for, handle and recover quickly from any incident. 

As digital services become more widely used, they also bring benefits, difficulties and dangers. The world faces a growing threat of cyber-attacks as technology progresses rapidly, and Wales is also vulnerable. This can be seen from the recent cyber-attacks that have made headlines, such as the attack on the SolarWinds IT management platform – which caused a large and complicated, global cyber incident – and the ransomware attack that disrupted several NHS health systems, including the NHS 111 service. 

Cyber-attacks pose a threat of disruption to people, organisations and businesses. Although no system can be completely immune to the constantly evolving cyber threat, we can take measures to lower the risk and be ready to respond to and recover from any incident. For organisations and businesses, it is not just an IT issue. It is essential that leaders comprehend, and have prepared for, the significant possible impact of a cyber-attack. 

Embracing digital and cyber innovation will lead to greater economic opportunities and a more prosperous society. Building on the strong partnerships referred to in this plan will develop new innovations, new jobs and new skills where they are needed (Welsh Government, 2024).
