The NCSC was set up to help protect our critical services from cyber attacks, manage major incidents, and improve the underlying security of the UK Internet through technological improvement and advice to citizens and organisations. Our vision is to help make the UK the safest place to live and do business online.
What we do
We support the most critical organisations in the UK, the wider public sector, industry and SMEs. When incidents do occur, we provide effective incident response to minimise harm to the UK, help with recovery, and learn lessons for the future.
More specifically, the NCSC:
understands cyber security, and distils this knowledge into practical guidance that we make available to all
By building on the best of what we already have, the NCSC provides a single point of contact for SMEs, larger organisations, government agencies and departments. We also work collaboratively with other law enforcement, defence, the UK’s intelligence and security agencies and our international partners.
