The government’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) seeks to improve the underlying security of the UK internet through technological improvement and through sharing insights and advice with organisations.
It has published the following practical guidance that is of relevance to law firms:
The NCSC’s Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership (CiSP) provides a secure, confidential environment online to exchange cyber threat information in real-time with industry and government counterparts. There is a dedicated legal sector ‘node’ (group).
To join you need first to register your organisation and then register accounts for each individual that wishes to access CiSP. The Law Society can be the sponsor for your organisation. Email us to request the details you will need to provide in your application form.
You may also be interested in the NCSC’s weekly threat report, which provides up-to-date intelligence about known attacks and vulnerabilities.
Cyber Essentials is a government-backed, industry-supported standard to help organisations protect themselves against the most common threats found on the internet. There are two levels of badges awarded: Cyber Essentials (self-assessment) or Cyber Essentials Plus (assessor verified).
