UK Channel

Welcome to our community!

    Our UK Channel Community provides this online resource dedicated to our UK-based members, made up of resellers, solution providers, distributors, vendors and channel associates. It offers companies engaged in IT delivery services in the UK a forum for UK-specific discussion, and provides an understanding of how CompTIA can best serve the UK channel and its members. All of our members are currently contributing to that goal with our varied list of initiatives. Together, we’re advancing the UK IT industry.

What We Do

We bring the UK channel together to discuss common issues and look for joint solutions to strengthen our industry. We introduced the IT Business Trustmark and added the Accredit UK Trustmark+, organisational credentials that form a business excellence journey, starting with validation of adherence to best practices and ultimately preparing UK IT companies for rapid growth. We are also working to localise our member resource centre for our UK members. We support women and inspire girls to join the industry through Dream IT. Watch this video to hear young women from the UK talk about why computer science is so important to them. Ultimately, the goal is to provide relevant and immediately usable guidance and advice as well as templates and related materials for UK IT suppliers.

  • The WHAT, HOW, WHO and WHY of computer malware

    May 4, 2016

    10am CT / 4pm GMT
    The Internet has gradually filtered into nearly every aspect of our lives. Many of us routinely bank, shop and socialise online and the Internet is now the life-blood of commercial and non-commercial organisations alike. This offers plenty of scope for cyber-attackers. The threat includes the random, speculative attacks that dominate the threat landscape - designed to steal data from anyone unlucky enough to get infected, as well as the growing number of targeted attacks on organisations. Such attacks can be highly complex and may make use of very sophisticated techniques to infiltrate an organisation and steal sensitive data. Typically, attacks start by 'hacking the human', i.e. by tricking people into disclosing information that can be used to gain access to corporate resources.
