Network security and network resilience
Ofcom requires communications providers and operators of essential services in digital infrastructure to comply with security and availability obligations. These include managing security risks, minimising impact on consumers and reporting any security breaches or network failures to us.
As part of our programme to enable strong and secure networks for people across the UK, we work with the UK Government to implement the outcomes of the Telecoms Supply Chain Review while working with relevant organisations, including equipment suppliers. We continue to work closely with DCMS, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and industry to monitor potential risks, providing guidance and advice to support the development of new legislation.
