Seminar: Cyber Threats and Core Resilience Capability

19 June @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm, Leeds Town Hall, The Headrow, Leeds, LS1 3AD

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 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. In particular the scheme is running free of charge a Cyber Pathfinder Training Seminar on the Cyber Threats and Core Resilience Capability for local public sector participants.

The event aims to provide participants with an understanding of the cyber threat landscape and the core components of a cyber resilience capability.

These events, which are free to attend for public service delegates are aimed at Senior Executives from Public Service providers – especially (but not limited to) Local Authorities and Local Resilience Forums or their public sector delivery partners – with responsibility for:

  • Cyber Resilience/ Security
  • Information Assurance
  • Data Management and the impact of GDPR/NIS
  • Democratic and Electoral Services
  • Business Continuity Planning
  • Emergency Planning

Places are limited to 60 participants for each Pathfinder Exercise event and so early booking is advisable.
