Leonardo will be hosting a free to attend webinar on: Adapting to the new normal – managing cyber risks to the Utilities Sector beyond COVID-19

Over recent years there has been a trend in the Utilities sector of connecting previously segregated operational networks into their corporate IT, supported by sensory information technology to improve management capability, efficiency and provide data to stakeholders.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in further rapid technical and procedural change to organisational systems and ways of which accelerates this trend. The obvious example of this is making changes to IT systems to facilitate home working. Less tangible is the shift in the culture and expectations of the workforce in terms of capability to work remotely and at times that better suit their wider commitments.

• Do you fully understand the risks that rapid, in some cases uncontrolled, changes to systems and processes have made?
• And how can you ensure that the cultural and technical shifts that have improved delivery capability do not result in unacceptable security risks?

Key Areas of Focus
• How organisations can understand the root cause of changes in security culture which present cyber risks, and how positive changes can be driven.
• How organisations can understand the risks associated with recent rapid changes in technology and behaviours;
• Possible approaches to risk management, security architecture and cyber resilience.

Ultimately, any approach needs to ensure that the Security Strategy, and resulting initiatives and activities, are suitably aligned with the business objectives and thereby demonstrate value. This requires an holistic view of security architecture and risk and will support building Operational (including Cyber) resilience into an organisations culture and technology solutions (combining People, Process and Technology).

It will be presented by:
• Dr Max Wigley; NCSC Head Consultant and Head of Consulting for Leonardo Cyber Security Division
• Scott Bartlett; Cyber Practice Manager, Leonardo Cyber Security Division

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.


There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.


Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SAE Media Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.


Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
