Upon completing the course you will be given access to a range of training materials including:

The materials are designed for flexibility and customisation, allowing you to tailor training to your own organisational needs.

TNA will continue to support you in providing training to your organisation. You will have access to an online network where you can download the latest updates to the material and contact both TNA and other trainers.

5th Annual Joint Public/Private Sector Workshop

The risks that commercial businesses face in cyberspace are as real and as urgent as those in the public sector and vice versa. Organised jointly by the SASIG and The National Archives, this annual event is an opportunity for the public and private sectors to learn from each other, to share ideas and opportunities, and to showcase a number of successful cybersecurity initiatives that have positively influenced staff awareness and behaviour.

The overarching theme for the 5th Annual Workshop is “Emerging issues and future trends”. As before, the audience will be split equally between SIROs and CISOs. The workshop will consider: what the future may hold in the world of security and information management and will address the following questions:

  • What support is available to the public and private sector as more information becomes digitised?
  • How can the private sector learn from the public sector, and vice versa? Who is getting it right? How can we share experiences, and pool our knowledge?
  • What impact will Brexit have on Data Protection regulations?
  • How can we make the cyber security profession look more like the wider population?
