GOVERNMENT AND PUBLIC SECTOR

Delivering secure outcomes for the UK.

Spotlight on the public sector - embracing digital change, securely

Do more with less, has become the status quo for the UK public sector. Amid global uncertainty and change, public services need creativity to make resources go further and improve life for citizens. The real challenge, though, is to bring this positive change whilst maintaining the trust of citizens and tackling the myriad of cyber security challenges UK public sector organisations currently face.

Resilience is the most valuable asset for an organisation in today’s increasingly complex world 

The National Cyber Strategy has set out the government’s ambition to firmly establish the UK as a cyber power. In a world fundamentally shaped by technology, the UK’s legitimacy as a cyber power is however dependent upon its domestic cyber resilience. The cornerstone of which is government and public sector organisations that deliver the functions and services which maintain and promote the UK’s economy and society.

The aim is clear - for government’s critical functions to be significantly hardened to cyber attack by 2025, with all government organisations across the whole public sector being resilient to known vulnerabilities and attack methods no later than 2030.

To achieve the level of organisation and visibility of cyber security risk across government requires extensive processes, mechanisms and partnerships to be established. This is a task that requires the right skills, knowledge and technology to achieve successful adoption across the varying levels of cyber maturity, capability and capacity.  The task at hand is clear and the time is now.

No business is more complex than the business of government

Embracing complexity paves the way for transformation. When integrated effectively, cyber security can reshape an organisation's risk posture, embed a cyber-focused perspective into business strategy, and harmonise compliance obligations with citizens' needs. 

By reducing cyber complexity, we help government organisations foster trust in their systems and data to confidently take calculated risks, adapt to disruptive changes, and seize opportunities for growth and innovation at scale.

Where tmc3 helps

  • Central Government
  • NHS
  • Local Government
  • Policing

Securing the nation

Departments across central government underpin the functioning of large parts of our society. With responsibility for making some of the most important decisions on a daily frequency, data and sensitive information is ubiquitous. Whether it means critical services being disrupted or confidential information being breached, any cyber-attack on a government body could have severe consequences. That’s why the cyber risk is so significant for you.

With this position of power comes the responsibility to be proactive in preventing any breaches and mitigating their impact. However, you are not alone; our experts support central government departments and agencies in protecting data and systems. We help you maintain public trust and confidence.

Keeping up with digital change

The NHS is challenged with putting data, digital and technology at the heart of its transformation in its continuing ambition to provide better outcomes for patients and staff. Services continue to be redesigned to address rising citizen expectations about self-service, personalisation, and convenience. This shift to online has changed clinical willingness to adopt new ways of working and facilitated new collaborations both in the centre of the NHS and wider local health and care systems.

With this change in landscape and increase of data sharing, Trusts have seen an exponential increase in their risk profile. More sensitive data is available at a click and cyber threats pose an increasingly real threat to patient care. With our cyber security, data protection and penetration testing services, we support the NHS through this period of change, ensuring services and care are delivered in a secure way.

Whether we are helping Trust’s follow the what good looks like framework to embed the seven success measures for a secure and successful digital transformation or supporting with the Data Security Protection Toolkit to ensure adequate performance against the National Data Guardian’s 10 Data Security Standard.

Our diverse teams of experts work with NHS Trusts to make them more resilient so they can manage cyber risk and be more prepared for future digital transformation.

Do more with less, securely

Do more with less, has become the status quo for Councils across the UK. Amid global uncertainty and change, public services need creativity to make resources go further and improve life for citizens. The real challenge, though, is to bring this positive change whilst maintaining the trust of citizens and remaining compliant with the myriad of regulations you face.

Our consultants have a proud history of supporting local government organisations through periods of change and disruption. We know data protection and security resource is scarce and therefore solutions must be efficient. Whether it is FOI process efficiencies or cyber security automation, our teams have helped build resilient frameworks that enable Councils to do more, whilst maintaining trust and compliance.

We bring creativity to our work, whilst delivering secure outcomes for our local government customers. 

Harnessing data

Police forces across the UK face ever increasing challenges affecting information security and data protection. As reliance on technology grows and availability of data becomes a key driver, compliance teams must play a part in supporting future strategies. In addition, whether it is the weighty requirements of the Data Protection Act 18 and Law Enforcement Directive or the protection of critical systems, police forces face increased demands on their time.

Our consultants have worked extensively with UK police forces including Senior Information Risk Owners, Data Protection Officers and Information Security Officers to deliver sustainable compliance solutions.

We help police forces reshape and reorganise security and information governance to counter threats and keep people safe.
