Worried about your cyber resilience whilst your staff are working remotely?

The National Cyber Security Centre has launched an exercise as part of its "Exercise in a Box" tool kit to test the cyber risks associated with staff working remotely. The tool kit helps small and medium sized businesses carry out drills in preparation for actual cyber attacks. This latest exercise allows SMEs to test their cyber reliance whilst their staff are working at home. The exercise has been launched in response to the issues currently faced by SMEs as part of "the new norm" where many office workers are required to work from home. 

A great example of the support available to SMEs during these challenging times. 

The National Cyber Security Centre ('NCSC') launched, on 13 July 2020, the home and remote working exercise ('the Exercise') to help small businesses test their cyber resilience while staff work remotely due to the COVID-19 ('Coronavirus') pandemic.
