This guide will share best practices for embedding cyber security into your council's commercial strategy. It will explore which assets need to be protected and how to understand the options best suited to your council.
The job of a commercial team is becoming increasingly complex. In addition to delivering high-quality services and value for money for their organisation, they need to think about broader strategic aims, including sustainability, supporting local economic growth, and responding to global crises. Embedding cyber resilience into a local council’s supply chain is one of those important strategic priorities. And therefore, it requires careful thought, consideration and strategy at each stage of the procurement life cycle. You will find more for information about the activities specifically related to the strategy phase under In this section.
