To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, what plans are in place for the National Cyber Security Centre to assist schools in fighting against organised cyber-crime and preventing cyber-attacks.
Answer (Caroline Nokes)
The cyber security of the UK is a top priority for Government. The NCSC provides guidance and advice on its website to a wide range of organisations including schools. NCSC technical experts provide a range of advice and guidance on the website on topics such as passwords, ransomware, malicious advertisements, phishing, and device security. This guidance and advice will continue to be developed in response to technological changes, assessment of risk and cyber security incidents.
NCSC is also building for the future, working with DCMS and DfE to grow a skills pipeline via its CyberFirst initiatives.
