Covid-19, NCSC creates a tool to better protect smart workers and SMEs

The UK NCSC released “Home and Remote Working” to better protect SMEs and home workers for the Covid-19 emergency. It’s part of Exercise in a Box, an online tool that allows organizations to increase their cyber security against cybercrime

UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has created an instrument to better protect organizations and people who work from home, following the Covid-19 emergency, to prevent and counter cybercrime attracks. It’s called “Home and Remote Working”, and is part of Exercise in a Box. An online tool that allows firms to find out how resilient they are to cyber attacks and practise their response in a safe environment. It sets a range of realistic scenarios which SMEs could face, allowing them to practise and refine their response to each. The new exercise focuses on three key areas: how staff members can safely access networks, what services might be needed for secure employee collaboration, and what processes are in place to manage a cyber incident remotely. Moreover, it follows a range of products developed by the NCSC to support smart working during the coronavirus pandemic.
