University network penetration testing

From 3-11 September, an authorised scan will be conducted by JISC to identify any weaknesses on the University network.


All systems connected to the University network should be considered at risk during the scanning period. This will be the first in a series of regular scans to ensure our Network defences are up to the job of protecting our systems and data from various cyber-attacks.


This work will safeguard the ongoing security of our network. It will also ensure the University’s compliance with certain parts of the Government’s Cyber Essentials Scheme
