Is your business prepared for a cyber-attack?

A cyber-attack can not only seriously harm your business, but also the public. The recent incident in Florida where a computer hacker gained access to a city’s water system and tried to pump in a dangerous amount of a chemical, shows how serious the consequences of an attack can be and why it’s so important to be cyber secure.

What is the NCSC?

The NCSC was set up in 2016 to make the UK the safest place to live and work online.

We support the most critical organisations in the UK, the wider public sector, industry, SMEs as well as the general public. When incidents do occur, we provide effective incident response to minimise harm to the UK, help with recovery, and learn lessons for the future.

The purpose of the Coffee Cyber Newsletter

SME’s cover a huge range of businesses and make up 99% of all business in the UK.  Often SME’s do not have the budget of large organisations to spend on cyber security. 

This Newsletter aims to break down cyber related issues into bitesize pieces which can be read in your coffee break.   We want to arm you and your business with the advice and tools to minimise the risk of a cyber-attack.  Each month will cover a different topic and will offer advice and links to further information.

We would like your help
