GCHQ is a world-leading intelligence, cyber and security agency with a mission to keep the UK safe.

Our brilliant people use cutting-edge technology, technical ingenuity and wide-ranging partnerships to identify, analyse and disrupt threats to the UK. 

Our priorities are set by the UK’s National Security Strategy and the decisions of the National Security Council, chaired by the Prime Minister, as well as the Joint Intelligence Committee

We always strive to stay one step ahead of those who are looking to cause our nation and its people harm. Our focus changes as the global threats evolve. We are part of the national response to the Covid-19 pandemic; protecting the NHS, supporting the Government’s development of data science and improving our nation’s economic resilience. We are also tackling a shifting serious crime threat that is looking to exploit the crisis.

Our role in keeping the UK digital homeland safe and prosperous is more crucial than ever.

We employ three capabilities across five mission areas to carry out our work.
