Cyber Resilience and Procurement – Deputy First Minister launches public sector action plan for Cyber Resilience
John Swinney, Deputy First Minister, launched A Cyber Resilience Strategy for Scotland: Public sector action plan 2017 – 2018 at the CBI Scotland Cyber Security Conference last week.
The action plan, which lists 11 key action points, aims to ensure that public bodies act as leaders in promoting higher standards of cyber resilience across Scotland and is complemented by the Cyber Resilience Public Sector Toolkit.
Public procurement and supply chain management is a key consideration and is addressed under key actions 8 and 9.
To further support the aspirations of this action plan, we have recently established a Cyber Security Services lot on our newly established Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for Digital Services which provides public bodies with an efficient and effective route for Cyber Security services and resources.
