UK NACE Academy

The Academy is part of UK NACE’s role as the UK’s Technical Authority for technical security

UK NACE Academy offers training to government and law-enforcement personnel tasked with assessing and managing technical security risk to sensitive assets within protected environments.

Training we offer

We offer a range of technical security training: from awareness to practitioner level.

We provide security education awareness for technical threats and vulnerabilities. This enables organisations and teams to put in place effective risk mitigation strategies.

We also offer practical skills training for government partners and agencies in technical surveillance countermeasures.
