Whilst the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has confirmed it is not aware of any specific cyber threats in light of the war in Ukraine, it is calling on UK organisations to bolster their online defences to reduce the risk of falling victim to an attack. It has published Cyber Security for Construction Businesses providing tailored guidance for the industry on how to protect its businesses and building projects from common cyber threats, including spear‐phishing, ransomware and supply chain attacks.

The NCSC will be joining the next Build UK Contractor Forum on Tuesday 3 May to discuss the latest guidance on cyber security and take questions from members.
