|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)
NCSC rolls out free and easy steps to improve public sector cyber security
Let us hope that they act proactively this time
