We recently had our first Cyber Security Month event which helped staff understand the risk of online threats. In this blog post we talk about some of the things we did and what we're doing next to educate staff about these threats.
Experts in what we do
Rob Greig talks about the threat of cyber attacks and why we have Cyber Security Month in Parliament
What we do, who we are, what's coming up for us and what we don't do
It’s been nearly 20 months since the Parliamentary Digital Service (PDS) sprang to life. By rolling together the House of Commons Web and Intranet Service (WIS) and Parliamentary ICT we created PDS. And we didn’t exactly do what people expected.
Elisabeth Ward recently joined the content team at PDS and she blogs about coming from a small agency to working in Parliament, what it's like to work here and how she's spent her first six weeks.
Culture - it's a tough one. You'll hear all sorts of companies and brands talking about their working culture - but it's not something that you can just implement. In fact, sometimes the more you try, the less successful you'll be.
... ok, of PDS for now - but world domination can follow.
For the last few months we've been sketching out the details of services the data platform needs to provide, getting the infrastructure in place and working with the new website team. Now we're beginning to explore the data we need to provide.
Since April, I've been working as part of the Data and Search team. It's a new team so we've been figuring out what we do, what we don't do, how we work together and with other people. And we've made a fair bit of progress in identifying what's currently broken and how to fix it.
As you know, here at PDS we’re busy building a new website. As part of the discovery work the content team are doing, we recently carried out a couple of short workshops about the content management system (CMS).
