A Message from Lord Pickles and Lord Blunkett, followed by Brookcourt Solutions's best practice article

The ability to listen and learn from one another has always been vital in parliament, in business and in most aspects of daily life. But at this particular moment in time, as national and global events continue to reiterate, it is uncommonly crucial that we forge new channels of communication and reinforce existing ones. The following article from Brookcourt Solutions is an attempt to do just that. We would welcome your thoughts on this or any other Parliamentary Review article.

Highlighting best practice
What we do
Cybersecurity is an ongoing journey.
Whatever security posture is needed
for our clients at any point in this
journey, we will support that posture
and move the customer forward,
helping them grow toward a more
sophisticated and mature security
state. We help customers to look
after the lifecycle of the IP packet,
monitoring and securing traffic, and
assist them with the IT applications.
Most importantly, though, we
aid the datastores that the packet
communicates with. The solutions we
provide prevent or identify intrusions,
reduce risk and ensure compliance
for the entire IT infrastructure (and
therefore the business as a whole).
Brookcourt provides the strategic
implementation of next generation
cybersecurity and networking
technologies to assure and secure
businesses from the simplest solution
up to protecting against an advanced,
persistent cyber threat level. Our
strategic, service-led approach to
building long-term and trusted
relationships is at the heart of what
we do. We take care of the entire
project lifecycle – from defining the
appropriate requirements, scoping
and designing the solution, selecting
the vendors, all the way through to
deployment, integration and – crucially
– ongoing support (if wished for) in a
managed service.
We continue to expand our portfolio
across all verticals as the threat
landscape changes, and as new and
improved solutions become available.
Some of the specialist knowledge and
solutions we offer are as follows:
»Advanced cyber threat intelligence
»Active and passive security solutions
»Cloud-based security
»Cyberattack prevention
»Data leakage and protection
»Software-defined networking
»Governance risk and compliance
(including GDPR)
»Network discovery
»Incident response
»Voice, data and packet monitoring
»Managed services
»Outsource or resource
Brookcourt can help defend your
business against today’s advisories
and cyber threats while helping
you with your data protection and
control. Our leading-edge cyber threat
intelligence technologies are provided
to leading global institutions as well
as smaller enterprises as a complete

The Rt Hon Theresa May MP's Foreword For The Parliamentary Review

By The Rt Hon Theresa May MP

This foreword from the then Prime Minister appeared in the 2018/19 Parliamentary Review.

British politics provides ample material for analysis in the pages of The Parliamentary Review. For Her Majesty’s Government, our task in the year ahead is clear: to achieve the best Brexit deal for Britain and to carry on our work to build a more prosperous and united country – one that truly works for everyone. 

The right Brexit deal will not be sufficient on its own to secure a more prosperous future for Britain. We also need to ensure that our economy is ready for what tomorrow will bring. Our Modern Industrial Strategy is our plan to do that. It means Government stepping up to secure the foundations of our productivity: providing an education system that delivers the skills our economy needs, improving school standards and transforming technical education; delivering infrastructure for growth; ensuring people have the homes they need in the places they want to live. It is all about taking action for the long-term that will pay dividends in the future.

But it also goes beyond that. Government, the private sector and academia working together as strategic partners achieve far more than we could separately. That is why we have set an ambitious goal of lifting UK public and private research and development investment to 2.4 per cent of GDP by 2027. It is why we are developing four Grand Challenges, the big drivers of social and economic change in the world today: harnessing artificial intelligence and the data revolution; leading in changes to the future of mobility; meeting the challenges of our ageing society; and driving ahead the revolution in clean growth. By focusing our efforts on making the most of these areas of enormous potential, we can develop new exports, grow new industries and create more good jobs in every part of our country.

Years of hard work and sacrifice from the British people have got our deficit down by over three quarters. We are building on this success by taking a balanced approach to public spending. We are continuing to deal with our debts, so that our economy can remain strong and we can protect people’s jobs, and at the same time we are investing in vital public services, like our NHS. We have set out plans to increase NHS funding annually by an average by 3.4 percent in real terms: that is £394 million a week more. In return, the NHS will produce a ten-year plan, led by doctors and nurses, to eliminate waste and improve patient care.

I believe that Britain can look to the future with confidence. We are leaving the EU and setting a new course for prosperity as a global trading nation. We have a Modern Industrial Strategy that is strengthening the foundations of our economy and helping us to seize the opportunities of the future. We are investing in the public services we all rely on and helping them to grow and improve. Building on our country’s great strengths – our world-class universities and researchers, our excellent services sector, our cutting edge manufacturers, our vibrant creative industries, our dedicated public servants – we can look towards a new decade that is ripe with possibility. The government I lead is doing all it can to make that brighter future a reality for everyone in our country.
