Throughout 2015/16, iStandUK and iNetwork supported DCLG in hosting a series of 8 regional “Think cyber – Think Resilience” – local leadership seminars across England.
As part of a local government engagement programme, iStandUK and DCLG worked to bring together a team of top level industry experts as well as local and national government experts police and others. The outcome of these seminars exceeded all expectation, not only did they help to facilitate raised awareness of the national cyber security agenda. They also provided an open forum for colleagues working in local public services to share perspectives and concerns, seek expert confidential advice and perhaps most importantly forge new relationships and connections with regional colleagues facing similar challenges.
Feedback from the seminar’s delegates was exceptional. Partly thanks to this iStandUK will be continuing its collaborative work with DCLG in the field of cyber resilience and security, which are, after all, crucial parts of the data sharing and data standard’s agenda.
As part of this collaboration we are delighted to be hosting key resources, advice and guidance from DCLG and all of the experts from the local leadership seminars. The Cyber resilience resources are hosted as a sub-site of iStandUK and you can find the link to the introductory page here or at the top right of your screen.
