The government has launched a new online cyber security training course.  The interactive course will help people working in procurement protect themselves, their businesses & their suppliers from cyber-attack.  The training is freely available online & will help UK businesses protect themselves from information breaches and other threats potentially costing £ms.

Procurement professionals deal with a ‘wide range of sensitive commercial & financial information which is central to the successful operation of many businesses’.   The course will increase awareness of common cyber risks & threats procurement professionals may experience in the workplace and how to prevent & deal with them.  It provides advice on how to safeguard digital information, raise awareness of cyber issues with suppliers and gives examples of how to deal with issues such as information breaches in the workplace.
