All UK organisations should protect themselves from cyber threats as war rumbles on

As tensions rise in Ukraine with war having effectively already begun, Lindy Cameron, CEO of the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has advised that all UK organisations should protect themselves from cyber threats.


You may be wondering what a war 2,000 miles away in eastern Europe has to do with your business, but writing in the Sunday Telegraph, Lindy advised how cyberattacks do not respect geographic boundaries and that UK businesses are being targeted by overseas criminals on a daily basis.


As the crisis escalates, it's anticipated that more cyberattacks will occur, with UK businesses potentially being caught in the crossfire.


To that end, we are promoting the NCSC’s Incident Management guidance, as part of their 10 Steps to Cyber Security advice, which we actively encourage you to read and add to existing business continuity plans or use to create one.


In addition, you can also download their free Cyber Security Guide for Small Businesses to help you better understand the threat and practical steps you can take to mitigate threats.


Should you become the victim of an attack, there is guidance on how to report it available on our website and as always our friendly team are only an email away if you need us.


Further audience-specific guidance from the NCSC is available:
