On October 23rd the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) published their Annual Review for the period 1 September 2018 to 31 August 2019. It’s a good read, if only to understand the breadth of the threats facing organisations in the UK. The Cyber Essentials scheme got a few mentions, with some 14,234 Cyber Essentials Certificates being issued in the last year.
