GPG13

Improve your GPG13 Compliance

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) provides practical measures to help government bodies meet their Protective Monitoring needs in Good Practice Guide No 13 (GPG13) and also on the GOV.UK site

UK Government organisations and agencies have clear responsibilities concerning the safe-keeping of information and the IT security of their systems. These standards span most areas of technology and are continuously reviewed. In general though, current requirements lean heavily towards providing comprehensive guidelines that then need to be applied in a proportional and risk-based manner across the public sector IT estate.
