Blackburn College Becomes Cyber Security Essentials Certified

Blackburn College is celebrating achieving the Cyber Security Essentials Standards, which has seen the College become IASME Consortium Certified.

The College’s Computer Services Team recently received the certificate from IASME and their Cyber Essentials Partner, the National Cyber Security Centre.

Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective Government-backed scheme that helps protect your organisation, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common cyber-attacks.

Kelly Wright, Head of IT/MIS at Blackburn College, said: “The College’s Computer Services Team have been working incredibly hard over the past few months in order to ensure the College achieves Cyber Security Essentials Standards.

“The certification comes with many benefits including the assurance to people that our organisation has up-to-date cyber security measures in place and that we take cyber security seriously.

“Blackburn College is also now listed on the IASME Consortium’s directory of organisations who are awarded Cyber Essentials recognition.”
