Most small organisations do not have an IT department or technical staff responsible for cyber security. And with so much cyber security advice out there, it can be difficult for small organisations to know where to start.
This is where the NCSC’s new training for small organisations and charities can help. It guides you through all the actions you need to take to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim of the most common cyber attacks. The package is free to use, and includes knowledge checks. No login is required – just click on the link and start learning. It covers five key areas:
- Backing up your organisation’s data correctly
- Protecting your organisation against malware
- Keeping the devices used by your employees secure
- The importance of creating strong passwords
- Defending your organisation against phishing
The training will put your staff in the driving seat. They will be answering questions, identifying possible issues, and making suggestions for how to prevent and tackle common cyber security challenges. It’s been deliberately designed for a non-technical audience (who may have little or no knowledge of cyber security), with tips that complement any existing policies and procedures.
