One of the most important roles the National Cyber Security Centre (‘NCSC’) is to identify, monitor and analyse key cyber security threats, risks and vulnerabilities to inform how the organisation, wider government and the whole of society can keep ahead of and respond to these challenges.
Over the last year, the cyber security threat to the UK has evolved significantly. The threat from ransomware was ever present and remains a major challenge to business and public services in the UK. During 2022 NCSC's Incident Management (‘IM’) team have responded to and managed 18 cyber crisis events related to ransomware, which required a nationally co-ordinated response.
These incidents included cyber-attacks against the NHS and other critical national infrastructure companies. NCSC IM can provide technical advice & guidance, attempt to identify the attacker and likely motivation and if the compromise is likely to spread. The level of support our IM team can offer is prioritised based on overall impact on the UK's national interests, assessed using the UK's cyber incident categorisation framework
On this webinar the NCSC will be discussing the role of an Incident Management team and how it helps to reduce the harm caused to victims of cyber incidents. We will also be discussing the potential cyber threat from Russia and what actions organisations can take, to minimise any business disruption that may be caused should Russia escalate its cyber capability towards the UK.
You are invited to attend this interactive panel discussion to hear more about the role of an Incident Management team, private sector Cyber Incident Response and the cyber threat from Russia.
