NCSC publishes guidance for businesses moving to digital operations

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, life has moved online in a very short space of time. While businesses have closed their physical premises, many have remained open through e-commerce, with many more shifting their entire workforce to remote working.

For many businesses, navigating the new cyber security needs of their organisation is an ongoing process, ever-changing as the situation progresses, but you don’t have to go it alone if you’re struggling to find the right solutions.

The National Cyber Security Centre publishes regular updated guidance for businesses on how to assess, implement and maintain cybersecurity for remote set-ups, from upgrading your existing technology to training your staff to recognise and deal with fraud and scams.

Their latest publication discusses the many steps you can take to safely migrate your business operations from a physical space to a digital one. They have guidance on how to assess the security of your current set up and what to ask your IT provider if you wish to change or upgrade your cybersecurity, as well as links to further reading for businesses on the topics of secure home working and video conferencing. You can read their most recent guidance here.
