    The award highlights West Kent’s commitment to developing cyber security resilience over the last few years, which helps to provide excellent and more secure services to residents across Kent.

    The ‘Best Cyber-Security Award’ entry showcased West Kent’s work in creating a culture of security, embedding learning from the Cyber Essentials certification and training provided through a range of new partnerships. This was achieved alongside introducing new security infrastructure and structured responsibilities, an overhaul of office and cloud environments, networks, and legacy systems. This was embedded through engaging with staff via a dynamic internal communications campaign.
