#cyberresilience

Background: DCLG in association with the National Cyber Security Programme is hosting a series of free seminars aimed at senior local government and local resilience forum colleagues to highlight the importance of cyber resilience across localities.

The seminar will provide participants with a view on the ways and means leaders, policymakers and practitioners can develop the cyber-aware culture within their organisations so that strong cyber resilience is seen as not just being an IT issue but is a key part of the wider operating culture and an integral part of the corporate DNA.

Through a series of key note talks, discussion panels and workshops from key national Cyber Security organisations including CESG the Information Security arm of GCHQ, Government Digital Service, CERT-UK the National Computer Emergency Response Team and the National Archives, attendees will be signposted and guided to the latest sources of help and advice as to how to make their organisations cyber resilient and what they can do to help mitigate persistent cyber threats.

They are free for delegates from English local authorities and their strategic local resilience forum partners.

Who should attend? This event will be of interest to Senior Local Government and Local Resilience Forum colleagues.

Our events provide a forum for local authorities, health organisations and other public sector organisation colleagues to come together to discuss information sharing and /or security issues that impact on the public sector and to provide learning opportunities , encourage innovation and efficiency savings whilst delivering improved outcomes for citizens.

If you have any questions relating to this event please do not hesitate to contact phil.swan@tameside.gov.uk
