NCSC Cyber Incident Response Scheme

The NCSC Cyber Incident Response scheme assures companies that help organisations respond to a cyber incident. In addition to the existing ‘Level 1’ scheme, a new ‘Level 2’ scheme is coming soon.

Cyber Incident Response Level 1 scheme

Cyber Incident Response Level 1 provides support to victims of significant, bespoke cyber attacks. They deliver a full investigation and offer recommendations on how to prevent it from happening again. The scheme is aimed at:

  • UK central government
  • Critical National Infrastructure organisations
  • Organisations in regulated sectors
  • Organisations operating in more than one country.
Cyber Incident Response Level 2 scheme – coming soon

Cyber Incident Response Level 2 providers will support victims of common, often financially motivated cyber attacks. They will investigate and offer recommendations on how to prevent it from happening again. The scheme is aimed at:

  • Most private sector organisations
  • Charities
  • Local authorities and smaller public sector organisations
  • Organisations operating predominantly in the UK.

The Cyber Incident Response Level 2 scheme will be managed by the delivery partner(s) who will assess and onboard providers and ensure ongoing compliance.
