From Compliance to Culture, From Awareness to Action
John Scott, Head of Information Security Education, Bank of England

The Bank of England has been running its cyber security education campaign for three years and learned many lessons during this time which we believe apply to organisations of all types. Through our work with stakeholders of all levels of seniority and business area we have developed training techniques and topics that we find can deliver real results in creating a just and secure culture. We will also take you through our “Cyber Seven” principles – what we ask our colleagues to bear in mind when it comes to staying secure.
