Important new Cyber Security Development

Alert message sent 24/03/2021 13:50:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

Dear Member 
Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) is committed to helping everyone stay safe online, as well as in their homes and communities. Our Cyberhood Watch Initiative demonstrates this, and we also support Get Safe Online through Neighbourhood Alert. Now we are pleased to advise you of a valuable new resource.

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has launched a helpful online process called the Cyber Action Plan as part of their Cyber Aware campaign. Clicking on the link takes individuals or small businesses through a series of questions to check their online security. It then advises on steps to take to improve where necessary.

NCSC Director for Policy and Communications, Nicola Hudson, said:
“The last year has shown us the great value online technology brings to us all – but people are right to be wary that cyber criminals could look to take advantage of our increasingly digital lives.

“We can protect ourselves from the majority of cybercrime by following the six practical Cyber Aware steps and the newly launched Cyber Action Plan will help people to personalise this advice. I would urge everybody to visit the Cyber Aware site, use the Cyber Action Plan tool and follow our steps to secure themselves online.”

Cyber Action Plan Is quick and easy to use, and you can be sure that the advice is both unbiased and of the very highest standard, as it comes from the UK Govt’s top experts.
