Information Services achieves Cyber Essentials certification following assessment in June 2023


Cyber Essentials (CE) is a UK Government information assurance scheme operated by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). It encourages organisations to adopt good practice in information security and includes both assurance frameworks and a simple set of security controls to protect against online threats. This certification demonstrates Information Services' dedication to ensuring the highest level of security for its systems and networks it manages.

The accreditation is important to the University. CE is an essential requirement for most Government contracts including research and other services provided by the University and supports research funding applications.

The scope of the current certification is the University’s Information Services department. All staff within the department are now accredited for compliance with Cyber Essentials as of 29th June 2023. The hard work and commitment of all IT support staff to achieve this is very much appreciated.

The Information Services Cyber Essentials certificate is available to download here and our status can be found via the IASME Cyber Essentials Certificate Search We are actively working towards wider compliance across the University as well as continual improvements to be able to re-certify for CE for Information Services in June 2024.
