Remote working: This free tool tests how good your security really is

We like free (as in beer) stuff. As this one is from the UK government it probably won’t lead to you or your employees being pestered for a “follow up” call…:

[…] Designed by the NCSC – the part of GCHQ with the role of keeping the UK safe from cyber attacks – the latest toolkit reflects the rise in remote working over the course of 2020 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic imposed lockdown; and how hackers have looked to take advantage.

The exercises focus on how staff members can safely access networks, what services might be needed for secure employee collaboration, and what processes are in place to manage a cyber incident remotely.

As part of the exercises – which are available to download for free – employees are provided information about processes and knowledge about boosting cyber security and are tested on what they learned.
