New free guidance on Cyber Security from THE Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport

Apr 19, 2021

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has published new figures showing that two in five businesses (39 per cent) and a quarter of charities (26 per cent) report having cyber security breaches or attacks in the last 12 months.

The Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2021 report also shows the cyber risk to organisations is heightened because of the coronavirus outbreak, which has made securing digital environments more challenging as organisational resources are diverted to facilitating home working for staff.

DCMS is now encouraging businesses, charities and educational institutions to follow the free help and guidance from the UK cyber security experts at the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).
