The story
Measures to bolster Britain's online defences are being set out by the government, which is promising to make the country one of the safest places in the world to do business. The Chancellor Philip Hammond says the plans will help protect the government, firms and citizens from online threats and will allow the UK to strike back against state-sponsored hackers.

Rory Cellan-Jones - BBC News
A year ago George Osborne announced that the government would spend 1.9 billion pounds on cyber security by 2020. Now his successor as Chancellor is outlining how that money will be used to shore up Britain's cyber defences.

In a speech later today, Phillip Hammond will underline the threat posed by hackers taking advantage of new opportunities like the growth of connected home devices. More will be spent on automatic systems, tackling spam and malicious software.
