Saying you will "strike back" against cyberattackers is great and all but now you have to follow through with your threats. Get hacked? Launch a full scale military invasion of mom's basement and snatch those bastards up! That'll teach em'.

"Our new strategy, underpinned by آ£1.9bn of support over five years and excellent partnerships with industry and academia, will allow us to take even greater steps to defend ourselves in cyberspace and to strike back when we are attacked," Philip Hammond, UK Chancellor of the Exchequer, is set to say in a speech in which he argues Britain "must now keep up with the scale and pace of the threats we face".
