The Academy for Healthcare Science meet Cyber Essentials requirements, meaning our ICT defences are satisfactory against cyber-attack, therefore protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data stored on devices which connect to the Internet and demonstrates our commitment to cyber security.
The Cyber Essentials scheme addresses the most common Internet-based threats to cyber security — particularly, attacks that use widely available tools and demand little skill. The scheme considers these threats to be:

phishing — and other ways of tricking users into installing or executing a malicious application
password guessing — manual or automated attempts to log on from the Internet, by guessing passwords
