Security Culture in Government and Public Sector Organisations

Government and Public Sector organisations face clear security challenges. The need to be accountable for their citizen’s most sensitive data in today’s environment of squeezed budgets, means that security is high on the list of pain points for the Government and Public Sector. With these challenges in mind, the CLTRe Toolkit can be used to design, assess, build and improve Security Culture in the Government and Public Sector.
Actionable Items for Improvement

Improving Security Culture is the key to building a resilient organisation. The CLTRe Toolkit provides you, the CISO, with actionable items to improve your culture over time. In Government and Public Sector, special attention must be paid to data privacy. The Security Culture action items within the CLTRe Toolkit can specifically target these needs.

Security Culture Across Disparate Locations and Systems

The CLTRe Toolkit is able to assess Security Culture from individual levels all the way to the top tier of the organisation, providing clear metrics on teams, departments and operational units. Compare the units across the organisation to provide relevant metrics on improvements, status and the effect of measures taken to improve Security Culture. This is particularly useful for Government and Public Sector organisations where there are often many different teams and systems spread across many locations.


Each of our assessment items are developed alongside our renowned research partners to ensure the highest degree of scientific validity. The assessments are created using social scientific principles. We have used these to create a quick, easy-to-use assessment that measures Security Culture.

Compliance matters

The CLTRe Toolkit helps you to document the Security Culture, and the changes over time. You can use our easy reporting to see the results of activities and the cultural impact on your organisation. This gives you real compliance, not merely tick-box compliance!

GDPR, the upcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation, will require organisations to document the effectiveness of both technical and organisational security measures. The CLTRe Toolkit offers deep insights into the changes of Security Culture, making it easy to track effectiveness of security measures taken.
