Around half of the £650 million funding will go towards enhancing the UK's core capability, based mainly at GCHQ at Cheltenham, to detect and counter cyber attacks. The details of this work are necessarily classified, but it will strengthen and upgrade the sovereign capability the UK needs to confront the high-end threat.

GCHQ is home to world-class expertise in cyber security. Government will explore ways in which that expertise can more directly benefit economic growth and support the development of the UK cyber security sector without compromising the agency's core security and intelligence mission.

Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) sounds like the UK's version of Cyber Command. The report hits on the standard messages for government reports on cyber crime and cyber espionage.
