UK Armed Forces introduce Cyber Regiment
The UK MoD on 1 June launched its first cyber regiment as part of a major modernisation effort.
The new 13th Signal Regiment will provide protection to frontline operations from cyber attacks and will ensure the functioning of defence networks at home and abroad.
UK Secretary of Defence, Ben Wallace, said: ‘This is a step-change in the modernisation of the UK Armed Forces for information warfare. Cyber-attacks are every bit as deadly as those faced on the physical battlefield, so we must prepare to defend ourselves from all those who would do us harm and the 13th Signal Regiment is a vital addition to that defence.’
The regiment will be based in Blandford, with 250 core specialist personnel deployed at various locations. The 13th Signal Regiment will also operate as the basis of the Army Cyber Information Security Operations Centre and will bring in communications personnel from the RAF and RN.
