A new scheme to protect small businesses from cyber attacks has been announced by Government today.
The news was announced by Digital Economy Minister Ed Vaizey while speaking at the Reform “Cyber Security: assurance, resilience, response” conference in London.
He explained how a new voucher scheme designed specifically for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) will launch later this month.
The launch of the voucher scheme is part of a package of initiatives designed to increase the resilience of UK businesses to cyber-attacks by promoting Breach Detection and vulnerability management. The package also includes a new online learning and careers hub to help ensure the UK has the cyber skills talent pool to protect both the public and private sectors as we face the reality of increasing cyber threats.
The hub features career information and advice, internship and apprenticeship opportunities, academic and professional training courses, work experience and senior level vacancies, and will be a powerful tool to promote the cyber security profession and encourage the next generation of cyber specialists to help protect the UK.
