The importance of communication

It is important that cyber safe messages are communicated in the right way for different audiences and from an authoritative source.

By communicating the cyber basics effectively, we can support the development of a culture of cyber resilience and, at the same time, create the necessary conditions to ensure Scotland achieves its ambition of becoming a world-leading cyber resilient nation.

Communication Toolkit

The Communication Toolkit will support you in developing an effective communication strategy whether to your workforce or out to stakeholders.

You will find out how to communicate effectively, provide cyber resilience messages and resources, and signpost existing campaigns and key contacts for further advice and guidance.

By consistently communicating the simple, protective behaviours outlined, we will help bridge the gap between awareness, action and, importantly, encourage the reporting of crime.
