The UK is going to be fighting the war against cyber attacks from a new HQ in London.

The Evening Standard has revealed that the new National Cyber Security Centre NCSC will be based near Victoria Station, and the centre will be tasked with protecting the UK from cyber attacks all over the world.

It was reported that specialist teams from the City, Whitehall, intelligence and security services, energy, telecoms and other parts of the national infrastructure and businesses will be joining the NCSC in the fight against cyber terrorists and criminals.
