Sports teams to get coaching on cybersecurity at NCSC summit after Manchester United report sophisticated hack

Premier League clubs will be among those attending the National Cyber Security Centre’s first-ever sports cybersecurity summit on Wednesday.

It would make sense for United to attend the cybersecurity summit on Wednesday, with the UK’s cybersecurity agency giving guidance to over 180 representatives from professional clubs and organisations across football, rugby, cricket and other governing bodies in how to protect themselves online from criminals.

11 Premier League clubs and 35 teams from the English Football League will be in attendance.
