Prime Minister David Cameron has said the government will invest £650m to address 'shortfalls' in cyber security.

This came as he announced the findings of the first defence review for 12 years.

Cameron said: "Over the next four years, we will invest over half a billion pounds of new money in a national cyber security programme.

"This will significantly enhance our ability to detect and defend against cyber attacks and fix shortfalls in the critical cyber infrastructure on which the whole country now depends."

Responding to a challenge from Ed Miliband, Cameron said that the cyber investment represented a "long term decision" amidst the government's cuts.

This follows news that National Security Strategy considered cyber security issues to be amongst the government's "Tier 1" group of threats.
