The NCSC Revamp the Cyber Resilience Toolkit for Retail

The National Cyber Security Centre’s (NCSC) has revamped its Cyber Resilience Toolkit to support retailers and boost cyber defences.

A collaborative effort between the National Cyber Security Centre, which is a part of GCHQ, and the British Retail Consortium have produced this toolkit specifically for retailers. It’s an actionable guide specifically designed for non-cyber experts, such as Board members, those in senior strategic roles, and start-up businesses.

“We want to keep shoppers’ data, identity and privacy safe, and to ensure that the retail sector is well equipped to face the cyber challenges associated with an ever-more digital world. The new BRC toolkit has been written in a way that is clear and concise so that it can be understood by retailers and those with a cyber specialism. I urge all key-decision makers in the industry to familiarise themselves with the toolkit and act on it.” Dr Ian Levy, Technical Director of the National Cyber Security Centre

The toolkit highlights the threats faced by retailers, key questions to consider when developing cyber resilience strategies, and guidance on the types of protections retailers should implement.

Recommended actions for retailers include:

  • Preventing breaches through stronger protections

  • Preparation to mitigate the impact of a successful breach

  • Recovering after a cyber attack

  • Developing and embedding a positive cyber resilience culture at Board level
