Update from the cyber security centre
Following Russia’s further violation of Ukraine’s territorial integrity, the National Cyber Security Centre has called on organisations in the UK to bolster their online defences.
The NCSC – which is a part of GCHQ – has urged organisations to follow its guidance on steps to take when the cyber threat is heightened. There is specific support and guidance for organisations of different sizes:
- CNI, large organisations and public sector – NCSC alert
- SMEs – Small business guide
- Microbusinesses, sole traders – Cyber Action plan
- Citizens – Cyber Aware
Organisations should also consider adopting Cyber Essentials to help guard against the most common cyber threats and demonstrate a commitment to cyber security.
While the NCSC is not aware of any current specific threats to UK organisations in relation to events in and around Ukraine, there has been an historical pattern of cyber attacks on Ukraine with international consequences.
The guidance encourages organisations to follow actionable steps which reduce the risk of your organisation falling victim to an attack.
