Hefty fines confirmed for CNI providers with poor cyber security

The government has confirmed that critical infrastructure providers with poor cyber security face fines of millions of pounds as the National Cyber Security Centre publishes new guidance for the industry.

Energy, transport, water, health and other critical services firms could be fined up to £17m if they fail to have the most robust safeguards in place against cyber attack after May this year.
