Understanding the threat

Threats to the UK's national security develop quickly and are ever evolving. In recent years, the geographical focus of the the international threat has changed considerably. We have seen the continuation of dissident republican violence in Northern Ireland against a background of rising community tensions. State threats are a priority once more, particularly in the area of cyber security. Privatisation and internationalisation of asset ownership adds challenges to the protection of Critical National Infrastructure. Economic and social pressures are creating new and renewed forms of extremism.
