Cyber Security: Briefing Paper 1

No other topic has dominated the boardroom agenda as consistently as cyber security in recent years. Concerns about the security of IT infrastructure and applications have grown steadily alongside organisations’ increasing reliance on these systems.

In this report we:

Earlier this year, we invited senior people from companies based in Bristol and the South West to come together and share how they use data to aid them with sustainability targets.

In the last of our three sustainability briefing papers, we ask our selected organisations to discuss the various networks and partnerships available within the sustainability space.

There is a multitude of sustainability routes available to organisations, and it’s not always clear which one to choose.

In this report, we:

  • Look at how to source businesses that share your sustainability values.
  • Suggest ways of creating sustainability led internal culture.
  • Provide a handy network sustainability resource guide to get you started.

In this report, we cover how:

  • Sustainability and efficiency are inextricably linked.
  • To navigate the confusing government funding landscape.
  • Partnership working can increase funding and learning opportunities.
  • To source cost-saving schemes at a local as well as national level.
  • How to measure and report on your sustainability impacts to help gain more funding.
