WHAT IS THE UK CYBER SECURITY ASSOCIATION?
Everyone knows that Cyber security is an issue – government, businesses and individuals rely on the Internet and IT systems, and have come to realise they are at more at risk from Cyber attacks.
These attacks are becoming increasingly more sophisticated and stealthy, targeting people, networks and devices. There are many questions, and not enough answers.
With this in mind, the UK Cyber Security Association exists to break down the barriers between all areas of cyber security.
What is it?
Who it effects?
Where do you go for advice?
How do you protect yourself, or your business?
WHO IS IT FOR?
The association is for anyone who is interested in Cyber Security Issues. You could be an individual who is interested in getting a job in the industry to a large corporation who needs help and assistance to protect themselves from cyber threats.
THE UK CYBER SECURITY ASSOCIATION (UKCSA) IS A MEMBERSHIP ORGANISATION FOR:
Individuals who actively work in the cyber security industry in the UK and internationally.
Small businesses, SMEs and enterprise/corporate companies who actively work in the cyber security industry in the UK and internationally.
Small businesses, SMEs and enterprise/corporate companies who don’t actively or necessarily work in the cyber security industry, but want to show that they take their cyber security seriously or have a strong interest in the cyber security industry.
The UK Cyber Security Association will work to a clear vision, mission and set of objectives that ensures best practice and information assimilation and sharing from the cyber security industry in the UK and internationally. This will be shared through our members and strong community to help with keeping the UK safe from the growing cyber threat.
The primary focus of the UK Cyber Security Association will be on building a strong community of individuals and organisations who actively work in the cyber security industry both in the UK and internationally to share best practice and to collaborate when it comes to the growing cyber threat and combatting it.
We will also raise awareness of the growing cyber threat though proactive thought leadership and education/training that focuses on how individuals and organisations can protect themselves as much as possible from cyber crime and all types of online and offline fraud.
