National Cyber Security Centre issues heightened threat landscape briefing

The National Cyber Security Centre has released new guidance to help UK organisations respond to the current situation in and around Ukraine.

The guidance - Actions to take when the cyber threat is heightened – covers some of the key considerations for businesses in the UK, stating:

The most important thing for organisations of all sizes is to make sure that the fundamentals of cyber security are in place to protect their devices, networks and systems…. ensuring that basic cyber hygiene controls are in place and functioning correctly. This is important under all circumstances but critical during periods of heightened cyber threat."
