The 13th Signal Regiment is a regiment of the British Army under the 1st (UK) Signal Brigade, it is part of the command of 6th (UK) Division, that conducts information manoeuvre and unconventional warfare.
The new Cyber Regiment has been launched to protect frontline operations from the growing number of cyber attacks.
“This is a step-change in the modernisation of the UK Armed Forces for information warfare. Cyber-attacks are every bit as deadly as those faced on the physical battlefield, so we must prepare to defend ourselves from all those who would do us harm and 13th Signal Regiment is a vital addition to that defence.” said the Defence secretary Ben Wallace.
