Cyber Essentials PLUS
HESA awarded Cyber Essentials PLUS certification
The Cyber Essentials PLUS certificate demonstrates HESA's commitment to keep data secure. HESA processes data about every Higher Education provider in the UK, all of their students and staff, and most of their graduates. Information security and data protection are fundamental to HESA's business and the Cyber Essentials PLUS controls, developed by the National Cyber Security Centre, help to guard the data against cyber threats.
The award complements the ISO 27001 International Standard certification for information security management which HESA has held since 2000, demonstrating a long-term commitment to the integrity, confidentiality and availability of the UK's official higher education data collections.
