The British Retail Consortium has published a ‘cyber security toolkit’ that will provide retail businesses of all sizes with a practical, step-by-step guide to prevent and manage cyber security threats and protect the customers they serve.

The toolkit is the first of its kind, and provides retail businesses with an overview of the types of cyber threats faced by the sector, an understanding of the risks to businesses, the details of key public stakeholders (such as the Information Commissioner’s Office, the National Cyber Security Centre, and the National Crime Agency), and how to manage cyber risks effectively.
