Britain faces losing its position at the leading edge of technology unless news ideas are developed to fight cyber attacks, according to the Institute for Security and Resilience Studies.

The group, based at University College London, says the government needs to develop more innovative ideas to tackle the problem rather than simply adopting a âsticking plasterâ approach.

It follows high profile attacks on the Serious and Organised Crime Agency and attacks allegedly from âbedroom hackersâ in Britain on the CIA and US Senate.

In a report to be published by the think-tank, chaired by Lord Reid, the former Defence Secretary, will say that without urgent action Britain could lose its position as a âlocation of choice for global technology corporationsâ and leave it reliant on systems based abroad over which it would have âlittle or no influence.â
