Wednesday 4th March 2015
The Department of Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) has published revised guidance Cyber security guidance for business for boards of directors to help them identify and combat online risks to their business.
The guidance contains advice from security and intelligence experts to help directors:
Appreciate the potential risk to different areas of their business or activities from cybercrime.
Assess those risks and decide which are worth trying to prevent.
Assess who should be responsible for risk planning and management in different areas of the business, and
Train and communicate with relevant personnel.
It has been updated to include the document Common Cyber Attacks which sets out what a common cyber attack looks like and how attackers typically execute them. It replaces the guidance issued in September 2012.
