Business and charities of all sizes in Northern Ireland are experiencing cyber attacks. A recent NCSC 2020 shows that 32% of businesses and 22% of charities had a cyber breach in the last 12 months causing disruption of business, loss of revenue and stress and anxiety to owners and their family and friends. Successful cyber attacks can significantly impact businesses, so making them more resilient and a safer place to do business and a much harder target for cyber criminality.
The Northern Ireland Cyber Security Centre is working in collaboration with the local councils across Northern Ireland to provide help and guidance that will enable businesses across Northern Ireland to be safer, better protected and more resilient against cyber-attacks.
