After a great deal of work from a number of people, the University has successfully renewed our CyberEssentials Plus certification. This means :-
- We are assured that we have met a level of IT security. Not that it means we can relax and not do more, but that we are headed in the right direction.
- We can now compete for contracts that require CyberEssentials accreditation and stay in compliance with contracts that require CyberEssentials; a significant amount of money (at least £1 million) comes to the University every year due to such contracts.
The independent audits who assessed our compliance were somewhat more rigorous this year than last year; we can expect more rigour next year.
