National Cybersecurity Awareness Month – a round-up
Through October our Cyber Team marked National Cybersecurity Awareness Month with the launch of a series of reports, articles and podcasts highlighting best practice on how to enhance cyber resilience. We sought to highlight the issues that organisations should be aware of and published two white papers on salient issues for both the public sector and businesses.
To round-up this month of activity we have provided a list of resources below:
In our first whitepaper (co-authored with Cyber Risk Score) we take a detailed look at building and enhancing cyber resilience in supply chains.
In our second whitepaper, we delve into the increased threat of cybersecurity attacks and the nature of cybercrimes that public sector organisations and local government face.

The cyber-attack that occurred in 2014 on Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide Inc's (Starwood) reservation database (prior to Marriott's acquisition of Starwood) highlighted:
- the importance of carrying out thorough cyber due diligence when acquiring a business; and
- continued monitoring to ensure compliance post acquisition.
We discuss this in the article below.
