  • Provide a forward-looking view to Cyber of business activities which affect current understanding of cyber risk, and update business functions on relevant Cyber projects.

  • Provide cyber consultancy to business stakeholders and UK Cyber teams.

  • Support work to increase awareness of cyber risk across key business stakeholders.

  • Review existing processes to identify cyber risks, and propose any required mitigating work.

  • Assess compliance with Cyber policies and standards.
