To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what steps his Department is taking to ensure that colleges remain sufficiently protected from cyber-attack should any college choose to opt out of the forthcoming Jisc subscription.
24 July 2018
At present further education colleges benefit from the high quality of cyber-security offered through Jisc. Once subscriptions are introduced, we will continue to provide grant funding to cover the bulk of Jisc’s costs, including cyber-security. Any college who chooses to opt out from using Jisc services will need to ensure they have an appropriate level of cyber-security in place in order to safeguard their systems, staff and learners.
