Are you ready for a cyber attack?

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) provides an ‘Exercise in a Box’ online tool that can help businesses check how resilient they are to cyber attacks as well as practise their response in a safe environment.

The tool will give you some exercises that can be carried out in your own time as many times as you want. The exercises include:

-A ransomware attack delivered by phishing email;

-Mobile phone theft and response;

-Being attacked from an unknown Wi-Fi network;

-Insider threat leading to a data breach;

-Third party software compromise;

-Threatened leak of sensitive data;

-Home & remote working; and

-Managing a vulnerability disclosure.

Micro-exercises are also included, covering areas like use of passwords and identifying and reporting a suspected phishing email.

To use ‘Exercise in a Box’ you need to register for an account with NCSC, and you’ll be provided with a tailored report that helps you to identify what to do next and sets out where you can find helpful guidance.
