GCHQ to show private-sector CIOs how to fight cyber crime
The government's spy agency, GCHQ, is to launch a programme today that aims to help business leaders in their attempts to tackle the growing threat of cyber attacks.
The programme, dubbed Cyber Security for Business, will be the first time that the government and intelligence services have co-operated directly with the private sector in this type of role and could be the first of many future programmes, the Independent newspaper reported.
GCHQ will focus on showing businesses how best to bolster their cyber defences and reduce risks through prevention methods. CIOs will also be given case studies detailing how firms have been affected by cyber attacks, and statistics of cyber threats.
