We all know that Digital Public Services in the UK are under constant cyber-attack. The UK Government has in place a National Cyber Security Strategy aimed at protecting UK Public Services from cyber-attacks. The National Cyber Security Programme (NCSP) is responsible for delivery of that strategy and is working with cross-government partners (such as the National Cyber Security Centre) to improve cyber resilience across UK Public Services.
The seriousness of this challenge means that local government and the wider local resilience community need to build a shared understanding of the implications for local multi-agency partners in responding to a significant cyber incident.
To help with this the National Cyber Security Programme (NCSP) is sponsoring a new Cyber Pathfinders scheme to help the local public service and resilience community navigate their way through the complexities of cyber security and cyber resilience.
The scheme is running free of charge a Cyber Pathfinder Training Seminar on the role of People, Process and Technology (see details below) for local public sector participants running from June 2019 onwards.
Aim: To provide participants with the core components to develop their own cyber resilience programme build around people, processes and technology.
Module 3.1: People, Processes and Technology: outline the core components to developing a cyber resilience programme.

How to treat cyber resilience as a people centred issues and keep people involved and informed;
Focussing on staff roles and how cyber resilience is everyone’s responsibility;
Ways to champion and develop a culture of cyber awareness both within and beyond your organisation;
Know and understand how business critical systems, assets and data need to be cyber secure;
How to look at the cyber agenda as being beyond the organisational technology brief;
Understand the role of Active Cyber Defence and key cyber technology standards;
Identify the core components of cyber policy that needs to be addressed in any organisational programme;
Clarify the various approaches to cyber threat analysis and how they can inform approaches to risk management.

Putting in place security architecture, with processes, governance models and policy. This is core to defining how a business responds to cyber security risks and is likely to be a key area of scrutiny if you suffer a data breach. It is important to understand how to develop, deliver or review a Cyber Resilience capability. Developing a policy which supports the whole organisation requirements and that of the wider LRF community.
This module will help equip you to review existing policies and plans but also address any key gaps you might have in those plans. The knowledge and understanding required encompasses all aspects of an organisation. Local Resilience Forums organisations are complex businesses and this knowledge is rarely held by single individuals or a tool managed by your IT service provider(s).
