CESG, Cyber Incident Response Scheme

There is a range of guidance to help organisations maintain cyber defences, such as CESG’s Good Practice Guides and ‘10 Steps to Cyber Security’, and information published on the CPNI website.  There continue to be occasions where attackers successfully breach the corporate networks of organisations based or located in the UK.  This may be due to basic defences not being maintained adequately.  However, it may also be due to the targeting and sophisticated techniques employed by determined, well resourced cyber attackers.
