Large complex educational network with many thousands of users driven by government to achieve Cyber Essentials accreditation
Two Cyber Essentials gap analysis exercises carried out at once including the whole campus and a research division
Clear statement of current status and then what is needed to achieve Cyber Essentials formed the final report to help bridge the gap
Segregation, BYOD, user access control and policy controls were key focusses also keeping an eye on realistic budgets to become compliant
Stimulated a debate surrounding investing in making the whole campus Cyber Essentials compliant or separating off each research department that needed to be compliant in order to maintain funding levels
Segregation of departments within Universities is a practical, realistic approach to ensuring that the interface with government and other customers is compliant with out having to cover the entire campus.
