Cyber Protect

The national Cyber Protect network are responsible for delivering the Protect element of the National Cyber Security Strategy. They provide FREE cyber awareness presentations to businesses in the region, as well as to local government and the charitable sector.

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.

Cyber Prevent

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
