The Department for Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT) has launched a project to help directors of UK organisations improve how they govern cyber security risk.

It has commissioned cyber security consultancy Arculus to carry out the exercise, named the UK Cyber Governance Project, and said it is seeking participants from all sectors.

The research, which is scheduled to run until March, will inform government efforts to improve cyber resilience in the economy and society. In addition, a report on the findings will be published on GOV.UK.

“DSIT and Arculus have an interest in engaging organisations from a range of sectors and in a range of sizes,” the department said.

“Within these organisations, Arculus is inviting directors, non-executive directors, and senior leaders with responsibility for governing cyber security risk to participate. In some organisations this might be a specific individual or head of department, while in other organisations it might be the business owner or charity trustees.”

DSIT also said that any organisations taking part will not be identifiable in the report.
