UK issues cyber defence advice for organisations

The National Cyber Security Centre has released guidance with international allies aimed at helping organisations stay safe from malicious cyber actors.

The joint cyber security advisory Technical Approaches to Uncovering and Remediating Malicious Activity has been published in conjunction with the US’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the Australian Cyber Security Centre, the New Zealand National Cyber Security Centre and CERT NZ, and the Canadian Communications Security Establishment.

The guidance highlights technical approaches for organisations – including those which protect our most critical assets – that will help to uncover malicious activity and includes mitigation steps based on best practice.

Paul Chichester, NCSC Director of Operations, said: “Cyber security is a global issue that requires a collaborative international effort to protect our most critical assets. This advisory will help organisations understand how to investigate cyber incidents and protect themselves online, and we would urge them to follow the guidance carefully. Working closely with our allies, and with the help of organisations and the wider public, we will continue to strengthen our defences to make us the hardest possible target for our adversaries.”
