Earlier this year, the NCSC asked UK organisations to bolster their cyber defences in response to the heightened threat in relation to the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

In the months since its publication the NCSC has seen significant cyber activity in Ukraine – and as such are stressing how important it is that a strengthened cyber posture is maintained.

There have been several reports published around the state of the cyber security industry, with warnings of skilled workers leaving the profession due to increasing stress levels. Therefore, the NCSC have published new guidance on maintaining a strengthened cyber security posture in a sustainable way.

It contains advice for business leaders and managers about how to manage the residual risk from an extended period of heightened cyber threat whilst prioritising staff wellbeing, and stresses the importance of:

  • revisiting risk-based decisions to ensure defences are implemented in an efficient way for the long term
  • empowering frontline staff to take decisions about prioritisation
  • ensuring that workloads are spread across individuals and teams and that frontline staff can take breaks to recharge
  • providing resources to managers and teams to recognise the signs of someone who is struggling

This guidance is the latest in an ongoing package of support from the NCSC in relation to the war in Ukraine.
