The public sector is a key target for cyber criminals and ‘cannot rest on its laurels’, Socitm warns.

The Society of Information Technology Management (Socitm) announced yesterday at its conference that it has partnered with Intel Security on a Cyber Guide for local government.

Socitm said a new local focus is needed in the UK to manage and respond to the changing threats as local public services become increasingly devolved and digitised.

It warned: ‘the public sector is a key target for many cyber criminals and it cannot rest on its laurels.’

Their Cyber Guide, currently only available to organisations that use the Socitm Insight service, will now be available to Socitm’s 1,749 members across local government and the public sector.

Gordon Morrison, director of government relations at Intel Security, commented: ‘Intel Security is delighted to support this very important cyber awareness guide.

‘Anything that can assist in combatting the ongoing cyber threats to local authorities and the public sector, through placing best practice information in an easy to find accessible guide is a great development.’
