The Launch of the Cyber Centre of Excellence

The Cyber Centre of Excellence (CCoE) is an initiative aimed at all local authorities and UK public bodies to help them stay abreast of cyber threats and give them access to military-grade protection at high street prices. It will be able to assist with the full remit of what an organisation needs to do and know to stay as cyber secure as possible. Sitting behind the CCoE is an Advisory Forum of some of the UK’s leading experts in cyber security. This group will keep the CCoE up to date with threats and abreast of new innovations.
