ECSEPA online survey


UCL’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy department is conducting a study into evidence-based policymaking for cybersecurity across UK civil service and agencies. The project is led by RISCS Director Dr Madeline Carr, Associate Professor at UCL STEaPP.

As part of that a nationwide survey has been launched and the link is available through NCSC’s current weekly threat report (https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/report/weekly-threat-report-8th-june-2018) under “The ECSEPA Cybersecurity Evidence Study”.
