National Security Strategy 

The Prime Minister has announced the publication of the first National Security Strategy for the United Kingdom. The strategy highlights the nature of the new security challenges, how they have changed, and how we are responding.

The strategy sets out how we have learned the lessons of recent years, including experiences of terrorism and civil emergencies, not just in the UK but also overseas.

Throughout, it draws on the wide range of knowledge and activity across departments, agencies and forces which contributes to our single overarching national security objective of protecting the United Kingdom and its interests, enabling its people to go about their daily lives freely and with confidence, in a more secure, stable, just and prosperous world.
