National Risk Register

The National Risk Register is the external version of the National Security Risk Assessment (NSRA), which is the government’s assessment of the most serious risks facing the United Kingdom.

The UK faces a broad and diverse range of risks, including threats to lives, health, society, critical infrastructure, economy and sovereignty. Risks may be non-malicious, such as accidents or natural hazards, or they may be malicious threats from malign actors who seek to do us harm.

The National Risk Register is also available as a PDF on GOV.UK.
