National Cyber Security Centre: Two Years In

Two years after the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) was established, this techUK briefing will explore the progress the NCSC has made to date in ensuring that the UK continues to be a ‘safe place to live and do business online’.

The NCSC was set up to support the most critical organisations in the UK, from the public and private sectors to SMEs and citizens, through providing advice, guidance and effective incident response actions to minimise the harm of cyber attacks to the UK. 

Attendees at this workshop will discuss a wide-range of issues, detailing the work the NCSC has done to date and exploring the emerging and persistent challenges it helps UK organisations face. These issues include:

  • Organisational development: how has the NCSC developed over the last 12 months, both in its position and structure, and how it has worked with the supplier community
  • Skills: how successfully is the UK plugging skills shortfall across the cyber sector, particularly those initiatives supported by NCSC;
  • Threat landscape: discussing how threat actors are developing their approach to cyber-attacks and how these can be mitigated against; and
  • Regulation: the role NCSC plays in supporting the implementation of regulations like NIS;
