Cyber advice and support
Our key strategic cyber resilience stakeholders have come together to form The CyberScotland Partnership, helping to drive the delivery of activities that will achieve the outcomes of the Strategic Framework for a Cyber Resilient Scotland. One of the first projects delivered was an online portal which launched in early 2021.
The CyberScotland Portal includes advice and guidance from trusted sources as well as information on how to report a cyber incident.
