NI Cyber Security Centre
We are focused on ensuring that we have a better-informed society and business community to better protect their technology, systems and data from cyber-attacks.
Working are working closely with a number of stakeholders including the PSNI, NI Scamwise Partnership and UK NCSC to provide up-to-date cyber advice and guidance which can be found on our website (External link opens in new window / tab).
Many cyber-attacks are being exploited through email and are known as Phishing attacks. These types of attacks are vastly underreported letting those responsible away to carry this activity out on others.
Report suspicious emails
We would like to bring to your attention the NCSC Suspicious Email Reporting Service (SERS) recently launched.
The SERS service is for members of the public to report emails they consider suspicious but where they have not experienced a financial loss. Once reported, the member of the public will receive an automated response and their suspicious email will be investigated where found to be malicious, it will be taken down or blocked by the NCSC limiting the impact to others in our society.
The Northern Ireland Cyber Security Centre fully supports this service and would encourage everyone to help promote good cyber awareness and actions by visiting our own website and the NCSC Cyber Aware campaign and use the Suspicious Email Reporting Service.
Do your bit for society and let people know about these services and the NI Cyber Security Centre.
Include #CyberSecureNI and #cyberaware on any socialmedia posts and to tag the team, please use the Twitter handles @NICyberSC and @cyberawaregov or "Cyber Aware from the National Cyber Security Centre" on Facebook. This will enable our team to track and share your posts.
