Cyber Essentials Success

There is a small but increasing need for research Departments to demonstrate a good level of information security through a recognised certification, such as the NCSC-backed Cyber Essentials scheme, or compliance with the US NIST Cyber Security Framework (CSF).  


GRC and MSD IT are pleased to report an early success in the Department of Experimental Psychology where a project has achieved Cyber Essentials certification, as required by its sponsor, with the help of a collaborative effort involving staff in the Department, the information security GRC team and MSD IT Services.


Several other research departments are also being supported by the GRC team to achieve compliance and certification and we are working on a repeatable and scalable process to help more departments on their journey in future.  


For more information please contact Michael Pinhorn (Head of Information Security GRC), or MSD IT (if you are in the Medical Sciences Division).
