About CCoE eLearning

The Cyber Centre of Excellence (CCoE) is an initiative aimed at all local authorities and UK public bodies to help them stay abreast of cyber threats and give them access to military-grade protection at high street prices. It will be able to assist with the full remit of what an organisation needs to do and know to stay as cyber secure as possible. Sitting behind the CCoE is an Advisory Forum of some of the UK’s leading experts in cyber security. This group will keep the CCoE up to date with threats and at the forefront of new innovations.

Training Provided by OSP

OSP Cyber Academy has joined with the CCoE to provide member access to its suite of training tools.

About iESE

iESE is a not-for-profit organisation created by local authorities as a shared resource to transform public services and retain experience within the sector. iESE has a successful track record of delivering transformation and service improvement programmes across the UK.

Total Protection Delivered Together

On behalf of the public sector, iESE has pulled together technology and skills from organisations representing best practice in the cyber security industry to deliver a range of products and services. A shared service in the best traditions of local public services ensures that we all have the best people, the best technology, and the best protection. Working together we have created the CCoE to stop these attacks before they happen, rather than just report the bad news when it is too late.

The CCoE is an initiative in which no single company is pretending to be able to do everything. It is a joint force of a range of experts in their own fields which will work for the good of the public sector

Managing Director of CyberPrism
To be involved with the CCoE is great. This new group wants to provide the best that it can for local authorities which is admirable. It is not about driving high profit for the experts involved, it’s about driving the cyber resilience capability across communities.
Irene Coyle
Chief Operating Officer at OSP Cyber Academy
Regulatory compliance is not cyber security in my view. We know local authorities are extremely vulnerable and I am pleased to play a part in helping protect these organisations.

The CCoE is both an information-sharing platform and a one-stop-shop offering a framework of services so local authorities won’t have to go to twenty vendors, they can just come to a safe pair of hands and know that if they buy something approved by the CCoE then it is world-class.
