English spies are working on an antagonistic digital capacity to battle Islamist aggressors, programmers, hackers, criminals and all other hostile strengths who endanger British interests.
George Osborne, British Finance Minister said in a statement on Tuesday, "We need to establish deterrence in cyberspace. We need to not just defend ourselves against attacks but rather to dissuade people and states from targeting us in the first place," as Reuters reports.
He further added while making a speech at GCHQ agency, "We are building our own offensive cyber capability."
The news of this cyber capability being built by the United Kingdom came as Mr. Osborne revealed the threatening steps of ISIL which plan to kill people of UK via disrupting power stations in airports, hospitals and the National Grid.
"ISIL is already using the internet for hideous propaganda purposes; for radicalisation, for operational planning too," Osborne further explained.
This announcement is one of the basic steps which the British finance minister has taken to ensure Britain's fool proof security services keeping in mind the Paris attacks last Friday, according to Telegraph.
Around 1900, extra spies will be hired to assist in counteracting ISIL's terror scheme. This will lead to a 15% increase in the staff of intelligence agency from before.
David Cameron, the Prime Minister of England has already announced an increase of $2 billion in the budget of SAS. He said, "Britain will again in the end prevail in the fight against terrorism."
Kevin Boeck, an expert at security firm Venafi said, " We must consider what happens when our Government or business networks or even the emerging Internet Of Things can be hijacked, ransomed, or even worse destroyed."
In the other news, United Kingdom will be spending the double against Cyber Terrorism as before $2.9 billion to be allocated for countering the fanatic use of the internet, as reported by Bloomberg Business.
"It is right that we choose to invest in our cyber defenses even at a time when we must cut other budgets," Osborne said.
Osborne also informed the media that seven government departments and nine small government agencies have agreed in a reduction of their respective budgets of 21% in real terms for the upcoming four years as part of the spending review.
Last week, he proclaimed that four Federal departments have also agreed on a 30% cut on their respective funds. Report regarding the budgets of nine more offices of the Government is yet to be confirmed by the officials.
GCHQ will collaborate with the Ministry of Defense to establish tools and techniques to counter-attack ove the internet, according to Osborne.
