In January 2022 the government released its Cyber Security Strategy: 2022 to 2030 which sets out how the government plans to improve the public sector’s cyber security.
The strategy details how public sector bodies can support their efforts in improving cyber security by following 5 objectives:
• Manage cyber security risk
• Protect against cyber attack
• Detect cyber security events
• Develop the right cyber security skills, knowledge, and culture
• Minimise the impact of cyber security incidents
With potential threats to the UK public sector multiplying, from organised crime to terrorism, the threat to cyber security has never been more pertinent. Making it more crucial than ever that all authorities across the six key pillars of the public sector follow the governments guidance and assess their cyber security capabilities.

Bloom was essential in the recent hiring of a consultant for a governance project within oneSource. Through the NEPRO solution, I was able to hire a consultant within 2 weeks of posting my project requirements. I was provided with proposals from a range of experienced and relevant suppliers and received valued support from Bloom throughout the process.
Working with Bloom means we get access to the best choice of small and large suppliers, especially supporting local Cornish Small and Medium Enterprises suppliers. Working with a dynamic and competitive supply chain gives us flexibility, greater supplier choice and access to the latest thinking. Overall that delivers better value for money for the tax payer.
I chose to work with Bloom as I liked the idea of outcome-based projects. It’s so much more efficient, as it’s a compliant process without the need to go through the OJEU process as it’s still competitive. Bloom has many suppliers already available but we can add suppliers whenever we want. Having someone who can help by providing a second opinion; a neutral point of view has been valuable to us.
