And Finally … Have You Heard of the ‘National Cyber Security Centre’ (NCSC)?
My thanks to St Ives Ecops subscriber Julie for drawing my attention to this organisation.
The NCSC is the UK centre of excellence for cyber security, supporting the general public, industry, the public sector and critical organisations on all aspects of how to prevent and protect themselves from cyber attacks. This involves protecting the devices we all use – smart-phones, laptops, tablets and computers – the services we all access, and the vast amounts of personal information that we entrust to them.
For individuals and families, the NCSC has advice about staying safe and dealing with common cyber problems, such as hacking, identity theft, computer viruses and other losses of data and information.
For the self-employed and sole traders, the NCSC can advise on how to protect your business and the technology that you rely on. There is also advice for organisations of all sizes, small, medium and large, and for the Public sector and cyber security professionals.
