Why is the training important?

Information loss and cyber-attacks can have huge consequences on government organisations in terms of cost, reputation and trust so it’s important your team is trained to mitigate against these risks.

The Information Assurance and Cyber Security Engagement Programme is funded by the Office of Cyber Security and Information Assurance in the Cabinet Office and forms part of the National Cyber Security Programme. It is important that public sector organisations understand information risk and that staff have sufficient training to prevent breaches and information loss.
