The UK Government has recently made funding available for councils in England to spend on Cyber Security, and we want to help you apply. With the rise in cyber attacks over the last few years, especially that of ransomware, it has never been more crucial to increase your defences. The deadline to apply for this funding is in May so it is advised to apply as soon as possible.
We have a free assessment linked below which you can use in your evidence when you apply for this fund. This has already been used by multiple councils to successfully grant funding.
We recently hosted a webinar on the Government Cyber Support Fund with cyber security industry leaders, Check Point, who have secured over 100,000 organisations worldwide. We covered how to apply for the funding and the potential products that your council could benefit from. We also had Check Point Field CISO and C-Suite Advisor, Deryck Mitchelson, give his thoughts on the importance of improving security in the public sector.
This funding can be used in various areas of your cyber security, if you have any questions or would like to discuss the funding or solutions further, please get in touch.
Kieron has been with SEP2 since 2019 and works in our support team.
For Kieron, there is no typical day at SEP2, for one day he can be working through open tickets, another day you could be working on a priority case for the duration of the day, and another day you could be working on an ongoing project, but what Kieron enjoys is that the mix of challenges keeps the role fresh and interesting.
Kieron likes that within the support team everybody works well together, and shares knowledge between every level and are constantly being encouraged to learn.
In his spare time, Kieron’s current favourite hobby is working on his allotment, which gives him a nice change of scenery and a break from technology.
