Businesses in the South West invited to pilot new Cyber Incident Reporting Service by 28/01/21

The National Cyber Security Centre and law enforcement agencies are launching a pilot ‘Report a Cyber Incident’ solution and would really value your help in shaping the service to make sure it meets the needs of businesses.


The team responsible, Project FORTIS, are looking for volunteer businesses and organisations to take part in a pilot exercise commencing 09th February 2021. To take part, businesses and organisations will be asked to submit historical (not live) incidents via the ‘Report a Cyber Incident’ webform, or even dummy reports if they’ve not been subject of attack previously. Any submission is for test purposes only. No action will be taken on the incident or data retained beyond the pilot period.


A briefing session will be held the week before (date TBC) to provide further details on scope, how to participate and the mechanism for providing feedback.


Cyber attacks, scams and breaches are a regular feature in the news headlines, and cyber criminals will use any given opportunity to cause havoc to businesses. By participating in this pilot, you will be helping to shape this service and ensure that it is designed to work for businesses across the South West, to help combat the threat of cyber crime.


If you would like to take part in this pilot, please confirm so by replying to ProjectFORTIS@ncsc.gov.uk by close of business Thursday 28th January 2021.


*Please note, dependent on volume of positive responses, it may not be possible to accommodate all organisations on this Pilot and we apologise in advance should this be the case.


In the meantime, if you have any questions please contact the Project team via ProjectFORTIS@ncsc.gov.uk.
