Effective Information & Security

The full iNetwork programme for 2017-18 is available HERE
EISS supports public sector and not-for-profit organisations to share information with each other and their partners in a safe, secure manner to enable better and more cost-effective service delivery for citizens and communities.
The EISS programme supports a wide range of information governance, sharing, security and compliance professionals and includes the Warning Advice & Reporting Point service. Many iNetwork member organisations depend on the advice and guidance they receive through EISS to address challenges such as PSN compliance, public health transition, effective information governance and cross agency information sharing.

EISS Chair Introduction

iNetwork aims to bolster information leadership to enable better (safe, secure and appropriate) information sharing so that services can be provided at an earlier stage which meet the customer’s needs in a more proactive and cost effective way. We continue to work to promote cyber initiatives that aim to provide information and support around how to reduce the risk of attacks which can damage Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of Information that is used to provide public services.
