The latest statement from the NCSC following the reported SolarWinds compromise.

Paul Chichester, NCSC Director of Operations, said:

“This is a complex, global cyber incident, and we are working with international partners to fully understand its scale and any UK impact.

“That work is ongoing and will take some time, but simply having SolarWinds does not automatically make an organisation vulnerable to real world impact.

“The NCSC is working to mitigate any potential risk, and actionable guidance has been published to our website. We urge organisations to take immediate steps to protect their networks - and will continue to update as we learn more.”
