|Be ‘proactive’, not ‘reactive’ when protecting your website|
The NCSC has come up with 4 simple & free measures for government departments to improve basic cyber security, which are ready to be implemented immediately by departments & their arm’s-length bodies. None of them require additional money to implement. Nor are they overly technically complex to implement.
The 4 measures in lay person’s terms are:
*Blocking bad stuff from being accessed from government systems (Protected DNS)
*Blocking bad emails pretending to be from government (DMARC anti-spoofing)
*Helping public bodies fix bad things on their website (WebCheck)*Removing bad things from the Internet (phishing and malware mitigation)
