Lead organisation


The Headline


Working with BAFTA award winning film-makers Matobo, and following hot-on-the-heels of a successful local authority focused collaboration, this opportunity allows your organisation not only to shape and deliver cyber training and e-learning to your staff, but gives greater digital protection to your organisation.

The Proposal


We are seeking five health organisations - these can be ambulance services, CCGs, NHS Trusts - keen to work together to create sector specific cyber awareness e-learning modules, capable of informing all levels of staff around the increasing cyber risks to both themselves and the organisation - and critically how to mitigate against them.


The collaboration will build on two similar public sector focused cyber awareness collaborations (one with 10 local authorities and a current one working with 5 housing associations), as well as learning from the BBC's mandatory cyber awareness training which Matobo recently delivered.


Indeed this health focused approach is being run because we know the collaborative model works, not only delivering highly relevant content, but enabling partners to share the cost and create a bespoke product.


With staff being one of the key lines of cyber defence, giving them access to up-to-date learning on how to be cyber aware is critical. Research from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has shown that staff are the biggest threat to cyber security, with 50% of the worst information security breaches caused by unintentional human error.


Modules will cover:

  • Understanding the Threat - Our Personal Responsibilities
  • Phishing
  • Password Management
  • Social Media
  • File Sharing
  • Scams
  • Portable Devices
  • Offline Security
  • Secure Use of the Internet
  • When to Seek Advice
  • GDPR - What is Personal Data
  • GDPR - How to Handle Personal Data


Work Involved


The pitch has two distinct work streams, the first being an analysis phase, where Matobo works with partners on the specific needs of health organisations and their staff, understanding the messages that need to be highlighted.


Having successfully delivered to the BBC, local authorities, as well as current work with housing associations means Matobo are able to exploit material and learning already created and quickly identify what is missing to ensure the greatest possible impact on your workforce. This phase will also consider what degree of localisation is required.


The second part of the work programme will then deliver a set of health specific e-learning films to be deployed across all participating partners. This will entail scripting, editing, content and commentary creation, animation, review and deployment. Throughout the process all collaborating health organisations will input and sign off on key elements.


The successful council focused collaboration will deliver over 35 minutes of high quality animated content and supporting e-learning material across 12 focused modules, and we would imagine the health version to be a similar length.


You can see an excerpt from the Introduction module here.


The animated approach is proven to be easy for all levels of staff to engage with, enabling people to dip into the learning as their job allows, ensuring all staff are up to speed - including on key elements of GDPR - but also allowing for content to be updated easily as the cyber-sphere moves on.

 Five health organisations  £6,000  Two days for scoping and content workshops £6,000



What you get


By co-funding and inputting your experience into the collaboration, participating health partners get access to the health focused video files and supporting e-learning for use on internal learning management (or similar) systems for staff across their organisation. These will be updated as cyber threats inevitably changes to ensure currency and ongoing relevance to staff.



We are looking to bring a collaboration together in late November-December time with a view to kick off the work in January 2018 and deliver in March 2018.
