NI CyberBase Programme 2021 - Registration and baseline survey

Closes 5 Feb 2021

Opened 14 Dec 2020


The Programme

The NI Cyber Security Centre (NICSC) exists to improve Northern Ireland’s ability to defend itself from the increasing number of cyber-attacks we see on a daily basis. We have developed this programme to help you improve your organisation’s resilience to this malicious cyber activity. 

This free programme, commissioned by the NICSC, in conjunction with Local Government Civil Contingencies, is an opportunity for your organisation to gain access to professionals in cyber response, to assess your organisation’s level of preparedness and support to help you further
develop your cyber response capability.

The programme will be delivered by Business Consultancy Services and has been developed with the support and cyber security expertise from NICSC, Local Government Civil Contingencies Group and National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).

The Opportunity

It is an opportunity for your organisation to be involved with us in a short programme that will give you access to professionals in cyber response, to assess the level of preparedness for your organisation and to receive support to help develop your level of cyber preparedness further. Participants will gain access to:

  • Baseline assessment for NI;
  • Education events;
  • Exercise events; and
  • Networking opportunities.

There will be a limited number of places, so we would recommend early registration.

How to register

The first stage is to register and complete a short baseline survey and nominate the key contact person from your organisation for the NI CyberBase Programme. Completion of the short survey will register your application to the Programme.

The closing date for registration has been extended to Friday 5th February 2021 to allow for some organisations to complete their registration (Original closure date was Friday 22nd January 2021).

Responses will be evaluated by the project team with further communications issuing in January. Education and exercise events will be scheduled over a 6 month period from February 2021.

All information will be treated in the strictest confidence and only be available to NICSC and BCS as part of this programme. Reporting on this exercise will follow ICO recommendations on anonymising data.
