THE RISING THREAT OF CYBER CRIME TO THE COLD CHAIN
Cyber crime is increasingly becoming a major risk to supply chain businesses, with ransomware in particular experiencing frightening growth. In this session we will focus on the main threats to the UK cold chain and how businesses can protect themselves from an attack. We will hear how the Government is supporting businesses to improve their security and how software and IT solutions can be an effective frontline against cyber criminals.

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), a part of GCHQ, is the UK’s technical authority for cyber threats. Since the NCSC was created in 2016 as part of the Government’s five-year National Cyber Security Strategy, it has worked to make the UK the safest place to live and work online.
The NCSC provides a single point of contact for SMEs, larger organisations, government agencies, the general public and departments and also works collaboratively with other law enforcement, defence, the UK’s intelligence and security agencies and international partners.
The NCSC supports the most critical organisations in the UK, the wider public sector, industry, SMEs as well as the general public. When incidents do occur, they provide effective incident response to minimise harm to the UK, help with recovery, and learn lessons for the future.
