Britain faces losing its position at the leading edge of technology 
unless news ideas are developed to fight cyber attacks, according to the 
Institute for Security and Resilience Studies.

The group, based at University College London, says the government needs 
to develop more innovative ideas to tackle the problem rather than 
simply adopting a “sticking plaster” approach.

It follows high profile attacks on the Serious and Organised Crime 
Agency and attacks allegedly from “bedroom hackers” in Britain on the 
CIA and US Senate.

In a report to be published by the think-tank, chaired by Lord Reid, the 
former Defence Secretary, will say that without urgent action Britain 
could lose its position as a “location of choice for global technology 
corporations” and leave it reliant on systems based abroad over which it 
would have “little or no influence.”
