The UK Government has published the National Risk Register 2023. This register of the most severe risks that can harm the UK and its interests is a public-facing version of the classified National Security Risk Assessment. The National Risk Register (NRR) contains a list of 89 potential threats that can affect the country’s safety, security, and critical systems, ranging from pandemics to cyberattacks. The government updates the register regularly and provides information on the likelihood and potential impact of various risks. This version of the NRR is more transparent than ever before, reflecting the principles of the UK Government Resilience Framework. It aims to communicate risk information in an open and accessible way to ensure a shared understanding and greater preparedness for risks. The register targets risk and resilience practitioners, including businesses and voluntary and community sector organisations.
