The programme was designed to improve existing operations and migrate from physical on-premises servers, hosted in the data centre, to a cloud-hosted infrastructure based around Microsoft 365, secured using Microsoft InTune, allowing users to access data remotely.

The programme has implemented ongoing cyber security testing and training for staff, reducing the threat of phishing emails and other social engineering risks. Larner notes that user engagement and digital literacy have significantly increased as a result.
