  In the last few years there has been an exponential explosion of technical cyber security solutions. Combine that with recent legislation and regulation updates including GDPR and the NIS Directive, who is actually accountable and responsible for bad technical security procurement purchases and embarrassing high profile data breaches?



Effective governance structures are frequently neglected until a serious issue arises, for example, a data breach, an internal investigation, a formal complaint from a client or a visit from law enforcement. However, good governance is key to implementing and maintaining proportionate and effective cyber security and data protection controls.

GCHQ Certified Training: The UK Government has identified a significant shortage of skilled cyber security professionals and Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) is working with other government departments to address this issue.

Whether in our personal lives or at work, cyber security awareness is important for us all. The digital revolution presents huge advantages, but also brings new risks that we need to understand and tackle given our increasing dependence on cyberspace.

Lockcode Cyber Security - GCHQ Certified Training Provider

Established in 2004, our vision is to empower everyone to keep themselves safer in cyber space. The days of asking who in the room has a 'background in IT' are almost gone - toddlers from two years upwards are playing on tablets, laptops and smartphones.


More and more employees are becoming their own bosses - with their own mini IT systems, connected to 'the cloud'. Successful suitcase-entrepreneurs, armed with just a laptop and smartphone, are the norm rather than the exception.


Lockcode's founder has over 35 years’ experience and education in science, technology and engineering with over 19 years’ experience delivering specialised and value-added Government and industry information and cyber security services.


Initially specialising in the defence and intelligence sector, Lockcode has supplied information and cyber security services to central Government, law enforcement and the criminal justice system since 2004. In 2015 and 2016 we also supplied the HMG-funded Cyber Security Small Business Champion.


Here's the best news, if you are a busy executive or entrepreneur you can now keep yourself safer online. And if we show you busy executives how to keep yourself safer in cyber spcace, you can then show your friends, family and colleagues - helping us to achieve our vision!
