The University achieves Cyber Essentials accreditation

Padlock

[04 February 2018]

To support a bid for funding, we have successfully achieved certification by the government-backed Cyber Essentials scheme.

This involved reporting on the measures we have in place for network security, user education, malware protection and the secure configuration of UoB machines.

We have recently been informed that we have successfully met the criteria and have been issued a certificate. While this is not a comprehensive endorsement of the security of the University, it shows that we are committed to delivering secure services and preventing computer-related crime. 

The certification will assist in future funding applications and partnership working with external organisations.
