Home Office seeks to lower entry barriers for IT suppliers

The Home Office wants to engage with suppliers as part of a new transformation strategy to reshape how it designs, procures and builds IT systems by lowering potential barriers for service providers of all sizes to bid on contracts.

As part of the ReSET4 programme, a strategy aiming to break down the department’s core IT infrastructure into smaller component parts to allow for more agile technology management, an introductory webinar is being held this afternoon to explain the process, as well as outline future opportunities.

The strategy is seen by the Home Office as a means of cutting its operational costs ahead of the expiry of a number of its major IT projects in 2016 by moving away from larger end-to-end contracts that tie it to particular technologies.

Today’s webinar will be hosted by Home Office CTO Denise McDonagh and the department’s head of strategy, transformation and architecture, Simon Bond.

McDonagh and Bond are expected to answer questions on the transformation programme and detail the provisional procurement framework that has begun this summer.

“ReSET4 will reduce the extent to which we are reliant on individual suppliers, moving away from large-scale contracts,” added a Home Office spokesperson.

“This will mean we can be more flexible in the ways we approach system improvements and more responsive to the needs of our customers across the Home Office. It will also make it easier to adopt new technologies.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...
