Cyber & Information Security Awareness Training for the UK Nuclear Industry - Part A

In February 2017 the Government launched “The National Cyber Security Strategy. ” This strategy sets out what cyber risks will be addressed, by whom, when, and how success will be measured.  The strategy sets out a path to keeping the UK civil nuclear sector ahead of rapidly evolving threats to, and vulnerabilities in, software and equipment in the next five years. It sets out clear expectations, and the roles that the industry, Government and Regulators need to play.

Course outline

The course is delivered in two parts.  Part A is aimed at employees and Part B provides information at an organisational level. Each part delivered in 1/2 day slots, or both Parts can be delivered in one day.

What is the training need for employees?

50% of the worst security breaches are caused by human error, it is recommended that all employees are educated in the essentials of cyber security.  

Businesses need to consider both initial and refresher training to ensure that all staff understand the risks, and actively seek to protect themselves, both professionally and personally, from cyber and other security-related threats.   This should include the latest in good practice in relation to ransomware, phishing, passwords, social engineering, malware, USB sticks, plus security at home and on the move, as well as in the workplace.    This is covered in Part A.

Objectives of Part A  

  • Putting cyber security into context for the individual
  • Identifying the damage to a business that a cyber security attack could cause
  • Cyber security attack methods
  • Strategies to counter the attacks
  • What is the training need for organisations?
