NCSC supports Northern Ireland’s push to strengthen cyber security capabilities
The Northern Ireland Cyber Security Centre is open and will work closely with the NCSC going forward.
The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has been collaborating with its Northern Ireland counterparts to boost the digital strength of its citizens and businesses.
Last week, the Northern Ireland Cyber Security Centre officially opened its doors and will work in tandem with the NCSC to ensure that the public, businesses, and charities will have access to the right advice, guidance, and support.
The new Centre provides a centralised communications role for cyber security in Northern Ireland, and will help deliver the Cyber Security: A Strategic Framework for Action – which closely aligns with the UK Cyber Security Strategy.
Throughout the week and as part of the launch, the NCSC has delivered tailored briefings to which demonstrate the range of support it can offer the public and businesses.
Resources such as the Board Toolkit and the Small Business Guide, which supports SMEs to protect themselves from threats, and Exercise in a Box, which helps organisations find out how resilient they are to attack, were showcased as useful tools for mitigaing basic cyber security attacks.
CEO of the NCSC Ciaran Martin, who officially opened the Northern Ireland centre, said:
“The opening of this new centre is a hugely positive development for Northern Ireland. It will bolster the digital resilience and strength of the whole community here.
“At the NCSC we look forward to working closely with our Northern Ireland counterparts as we develop ground-breaking new products and services to help all of us meet the fast-evolving cyber threats.”
