UK government publishes cyber security guidance for businesses

BIS, the Department for Business Innovation & Skills, has issued three documents aimed at giving businesses guidance on cyber security.

The new guidance provides advice from security and intelligence experts across government about how to defeat most cyber attacks. The guidance is aimed at company boards and their chairs and chief executive officers to ‘embed the idea that this is a strategic risk that needs to be managed at board level’.

The documents are:

  • Cyber risk management: a board level responsibility
  • 10 steps to cyber security: executive companion
  • 10 steps to cyber security: advice sheets

All these documents can be downloaded as PDFs from here.
