UK businesses get cybersecurity response team to call on if attacked
The UK’s intelligence services have unveiled a ‘Cyber Incident Response’ scheme for businesses who have fallen victim to cyber-attacks.
The idea involves a set of private companies that organisations should be able to turn to in the event of attack. In its pilot phase, those companies will be BAE Systems Detica, Mandiant, Cassidian and Context IS. The scheme is backed by GCHQ information assurance division CESG, as well as the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI).
