As more and more government services move online, the need for high quality cyber security skills becomes ever more pressing for departments and organisations.

This means that governments need to both recruit the skills they need to boost the cyber security of the crucial national systems and ensure that staff across government all have the skills and understanding that they need to keep government data secure.

This webinar will look at how governments can boost cyber security across the full range of departments and agencies, considering how organisations need to respond to the ‘new normal’ of flexible and remote working to ensure that the key information of government remains secure, and consider what techniques, such as zero trust, governments can use to make sure that they are eliminating as many threats as possible.

Join this webinar to find out:

  • How governments assess the cyber security threat it faces.
  • How governments can ensure public and civil servants take account of cyber security in policy and delivery.
  • How to ensure that officials have the cyber security skills they need.
