The course aims to provide a foundation for personnel who are NOT IT specialists but will be required to handle classified information using IT.
It will provide a base-level understanding of general IT terminology to enable attendees to converse about IT issues in relation to Information and Cyber security within the HMG supply chain.
It will also provide attendees with a broad understanding of information and cyber security in the government supply chain, plus the ability to understand key aspects of Cyber Essentials and methods of compliance with the Security Policy Framework.
This course is being run ‘live’ across Microsoft Teams. There will be a mixture of Powerpoint presentations and interactive Q&A sessions with the tutors.
The course material is drawn from Government Security Instructions, including the Security Policy Framework (SPF). Guidance and literature from advisory bodies such as CPNI, NCSC and MOD is used throughout.
