It’s a leap year, which means this month we get all get an extra day. Since Leap Years were introduced by Julius Caesar in 46 B.C, we have been getting that extra day, every 4 years to help maintain the Gregorian calendar’s synchronicity with the celestial movements of our solar system. Nice! An extra day of work? An extra day of rest?
Well, this year, you also get extra SEGWARP.
From 2020, SEGWARP face-to-face meetings will be held six times a year instead of four. The venue may vary but is usually in central London within easy reach of the rail and tube network.
The next meeting will be held on 11 March 2020.
What is SEGWARP?
South East Government Warning, Advisory and Reporting Point (SEGWARP) is one of a number of groups around the country designed to bring together information security officers from local government. The aim is to provide a one-stop shop for early warning, information sharing and best-practice advice around the latest cyber-security threats.
South East Employers runs SEGWARP in conjunction with a specialist WARP manager. We also have the co-operation of the LGA, other WARPs around the country, local resilience forums and specialist organisations such as the local Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU). Membership is open to all public sector organisations in our region. Current charges are:
- £530 per annum for district and borough councils
- £790 for unitary councils
- £1,050 for county councils
There is a 20% premium for organisations that are not in membership of SEE. We also welcome membership enquiries from any public-sector organisation in the south-east region. Please contact us to discuss membership rates.
