The national Cyber Prevent network aims to:

  • Educate young people about the dangers and penalties of getting involved in cyber crime
  • Educate young people about opportunities in cyber security
  • Divert those on the cusp of committing cyber crime
  • Manage the highest risk cyber offenders

Cyber Prepare

Cyber Prepare is all about being resilient - how to bounce back quickly from a cyber incident with minimal disruption and impact. Having a good information assurance policy is the best way to be prepared. Do you conduct Cyber Drills?... you probably have fire drills so why not simulate a cyber incident, which is more likely to occur. Be ready, be resilient.

The Cyber Prepare capability is delivered alongside Cyber Protect within SEROCU.
