In partnership with the Scottish Government and Police Scotland, Cyber and Fraud Centre - Scotland has launched the UK’s first cyber incident response helpline for the SME community and the third sector to help victims of cybercrime understand what support is immediately available to them and help them recover.
The FREE helpline will help organisations confirm they have been the victim of an attack and, if so, provide expert guidance to get them back to secure operations.
When to call the helpline
Any organisation concerned about their IT security should call Cyber and Fraud Centre - Scotland and if they think there is criminal activity to report the crime to Police Scotland on 101.
Organisations who are concerned about their security in general can also get in touch to confirm they have the right processes in place.
The helpline is run by Cyber and Fraud Centre - Scotlandin collaboration with Scottish Government and Police Scotland, and will also work with several trusted external companies around the country who can help in situations where an onsite expert is needed.
How to get in touch
Businesses can reach the cyber incident helpline by calling 01786 437472 weekdays 9.00 am - 5.00 pm.
