The National Cyber Security Centre are inviting UK businesses and organisations to a free webinar to help better prepare and protect themselves from ransomware and other cyber attacks.
The Digital Loft (aka webinar) takes place on Tuesday, April 12 at 10am, and will see experts from the NCSC, which is part of GCHQ, demonstrate their free tool, Exercise in a Box, which any organisation - regardless of size - can use.
The webinar is part of the ongoing work of the NCSC to tackle the threat from ransomware and to bolster the cyber resilience of the UK in light of events in Ukraine.
Writing jointly in The Times, the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Steve Barclay, and Director General of the CBI Tony Danker said:
“While the NCSC is not aware of any specific cyber threats to UK organisations in relation to the Russian invasion, there is a heightened risk of hostile cyber activity.
In the last year, two in five UK businesses were subject to some form of cyber-attack or attempted breach. If the UK is to be protected, Government and business must act as one.
We are jointly calling on businesses to work together and treat cyber security as a core boardroom responsibility; an equal threat to financial and other risks”.

The webinar is open to any UK business or organisation and the EMCRC would encourage you to register.
