Having a robust approach to cyber security is essential for any organisation, particularly if you are dealing with sensitive information and vulnerable individuals. What a robust approach looks like is relative to the size of your organisation and the type of information you manage.

We have provided guidance to put in place the foundations for your cyber security approach and ensure you have basic approaches in place.

Tool 6: checklist for data security has been developed in consultation with Red Goat Cyber. You can use these as a starting point to developing your cyber security approach.
