NCSC Tackles 10 Attacks on Government Per Week

The UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has blocked more than 10 cyber-attacks per week in its first two years of operation, blaming nation states for the majority of incidents.

The government body was spun out of GCHQ in 2016 with a goal of making the UK one of the safest places to live and work online.

Since then, it has dealt with 1100 attacks and helped central and local government become more resilient via its Active Cyber Defence (ACD) strategy.

The idea here is to employ simple-to-use, tried-and-tested online tools and techniques to mitigate the risk from high volume, commodity attacks like phishing.
