iSolutions managed research computing infrastructure

Our current certification expires on the 2nd August 2022.

Cyber Essentials is a government backed scheme championed by the National Cyber Security Centre, for organisations to demonstrate best practice in information security, ensuring that we maintain compliance against five control areas:

  1. Secure your internet connection
  2. Secure your devices and software
  3. Control who has access to your data and services
  4. Protect yourself from viruses and other malware
  5. Keep your devices and software up to date

If you’d like to talk to someone about our certification, including what is and isn’t covered, please email and someone will be in touch with you soon.
