*** PPE - call for action ***
Wiltshire & Swindon LRF is working with fellow responders across the South West and are grateful to businesses and others for their support in providing essential PPE supplies. PPE continues to present a huge challenge, and a national request is being made of organisations or others able to help with making PPE such as visors and gowns for our frontline workers.

Cyber-attacks and data breaches
Cyber-attacks and data breaches have proven to be two of the greatest concerns for business continuity professionals for several years running.
Cyber security’s core function is to protect the devices we all use (smartphones, laptops, tablets and computers), and the services we access - both online and at work - from theft or damage. It’s also about preventing unauthorised access to the vast amounts of personal information we store on these devices, and online.
The National Cyber Security Centre, which is part of GCHQ has produced guides to help your business to improve cyber security within your organisation - quickly, easily and at low cost.
