Scope of the Framework: Lot Structure

The Cyber Security Services framework agreement is broken down into the following individual Lots based on specialist service areas:

Lot 1 Emergency Cyber Incident Management

Focuses on the provision of urgent incident response capability for large-scale or local incidents, including the ability to quickly draw down expert skills and resource 24/7/365.

Particularly useful to support incident control, containment, resolution and remediation in the event of a Cyber Security Incident.

Lot 2 Cyber Consultancy Services

Delivers specialist support needed to enhance an organisation's cyber credentials, including Data Security On-Site Assessments, Security Testing, Technical Assurance, Forensics and Investigations, Policy Development, Awareness and Training.

Particularly useful for any organisation that has a requirement to access ad-hoc or ongoing advisory support often strategic in nature with well defined outcomes.

Lot 3 Security Personnel

Enables supply of specialist personnel to support and augment existing in-house capability.

Requirements are anticipated to be wide ranging and of a more routine nature. This lot will ultimately support organisations to reduce their exposure to threats, improve security defences and provide resource support to respond to cyber incidents.
