Cyber Essentials at Queen’s

What is Cyber Essentials? Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials (CE) is a simple but effective, Government backed scheme which certifies that a business area or project meets a defined level of IT security – certifications are valid for one year.

Business areas and research projects at the University are increasingly finding that CE is a requirement for participation in projects and third-party cooperation, where assurance is sought that our IT systems are properly secured and protected.

The Cyber Security team can provide advice and assistance with achieving CE in your business area or research/collaboration project.

The cost of certification should be met within the business/project budget and is
currently ~£300 (2020/21).
