When incidents do occur, the NCSC 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
- responds to cyber security incidents to reduce the harm they cause to organisations and the wider UK
- uses industry and academic expertise to nurture the UK's cyber security capability
- reduces risks to the UK by securing public and private sector networks.
