CyberScotland Week

Keeping everyone cyber aware and resilient.

CyberScotland Week brings people and organisations across Scotland together to raise cyber security awareness and build cyber resilience.

This week of events is for everyone, regardless of age. Cyber threats can impact our personal and professional lives as we increasingly live more of our lives online. We all need to understand cyber risks and take steps to protect ourselves, our families, and our businesses as the digital world continues to expand. CyberScotland Week offers something for individuals who want to be safer online, as well as for organisations looking to develop robust cyber defences. By participating in CyberScotland Week, we can work together to create a more secure digital future for Scotland.

Getting the cyber basics right

There are simple steps you can take to protect yourself and your business from cyber security risks to ensure you have the basics in place.

A good start is with the NCSC’s Small Buisness Guide and Small Charity Guide.

Each contains five quick and easy steps that could save time, money and even your business’ reputation. Doing these steps will significantly increase your protection from the most common types of cyber crime.

If you want to improve your cyber security further, then you can seek certification under the Cyber Essentials scheme.

Go to Small Buisness Guide

The guide includes 5 steps:

  1. Backing up your data 
  2. Protecting your organisation from malware
  3. Keeping your smartphones (and tablets) safe
  4. Using passwords to protect your data
  5. Avoiding phishing attacks

Learn how to protect yourself or your small business online with the Cyber Aware Action Plan. Answer a few questions on topics like passwords and two-factor authentication, and get a free personalised list of actions that will help you improve your cyber security.
