Corporate Governance Framework
Our corporate governance framework sets out the necessary responsibilities and procedures that guarantee we operate properly.
24 - Cyber Security
24.1 As part of its approach to risk management and information assurance the Gambling Commission should ensure the robustness of its cyber security to protect itself against data breaches, service disruption, loss and reputational damage. The level of provision should be proportionate to the Gambling Commission's size and the level of risk it carries in terms of cyber vulnerability. A range of relevant Government advice and guidance can be found at GOV.UK's Cyber secruity guidance for businesses (opens in new tab).
24.2. As a minimum, the Gambling Commission should take steps to ensure it has basic cyber security controls in place. These should be at least at the level set out in the Cyber Essentials scheme. Further details of this scheme can be found at http://www.cyberstreetwise.co.uk/cyberessentials (opens in new tab). Departmental officials can offer further guidance and support.
