Softcat introduces a new cyber security campaign – giving constructive advice on how to secure businesses today, no matter their size.

Change has come quickly to the public sector within a short span of time. As a result, one of the UK’s leading technology providers– Softcat – has introduced a new cyber security campaign, spotlighting the public sector.

One of the main features of the Softcat campaign is a public sector cyber security strategy guide. This guide focuses on the primary considerations that need to be assessed in today’s climate, while providing the useful advice needed to take on the obstacles yet to come.

Most recently the global pandemic has brought with it unprecedented changes and the guide addresses those changes while highlighting how public sector organisations have not always been able to follow their usual processes and rigor for deployment. Softcat provides specific advice to help public sector organisations reexamine cyber security to protect their ability to build securely on their cyber security digital transformation.

Finally, Softcat’s ultimate goal is to support organisations in achieving continued cyber security success. What this ‘success’ looks like will, of course, vary among organisations, but overall goal remains to help them think about the major areas that have widespread impact and deal with them properly.

Softcat made sure to build the strategy guide keeping in mind that propelling improved business outcomes within the public sector means putting people first. To that end, the guide offers valuable contributions and insights from several senior members of the team:
