What's next sign and padlocks

Digital, data and technology underpin our public services - how do we ensure continuity and keep them safe from cyber attack?

The cyber security stakes have been rising since long before the start of the Covid pandemic in 2020. But the pandemic has highlighted just how much we rely on technology to keep our public services running. Over the last eighteen months the cyber attackers have targeted the sector and its valuable citizen and patient information ruthlessly during - universities, councils, hospitals and central government have all been under the cyber cosh. So how can we keep one step ahead?
