GCA Lights Up London’s BT Tower

Today GCA will be the organisation featured on the BT Tower banner, with a series of cybersecurity messages addressed to all:

‘Be Cyber Secure · Cybersecurity for All · Secure Your Digital World · Secure Your Business · GCAcyber.org’

The action, which can be followed on Twitter under the #BeCyberSecure hashtag, will try to raise awareness amongst all citizens on the importance of taking an active approach to cybersecurity in order to protect their individual rights (Cybersecurity for All), their businesses and professional activities (Secure Your Business), and the Internet as an ecosystem in which to thrive (Secure Your Digital World).

In parallel to the activity on BT Tower, and as a way to support those messages, GCA has gathered several partners and collaborators in the UK (including BT, the City of London PoliceLloyds Banking GroupNCSCNeira Jones, and Vivida) in a series of exclusive videos and virtual interviews that cover all these fields of action. They are a unique opportunity to learn from some industry insiders what ‘the man or woman in the street’ can do to #BeCyberSecure.

Here you can find the links to all the videos and interviews offered by our partners and collaborators in the UK:

In its five year history, GCA has done intensive work – launching Quad9, a global DNS service that blocks an average of 60 million malicious domains a day; addressing phishing and business email compromise through advocacy and training on the DMARC protocol; and providing free cybersecurity toolkits for small businesses in EnglishGermanFrench, and Spanish and elections officials.
