From education to employment

Jisc’s 2019 cyber security survey now open

This year’s cyber security posture survey is now live and we’d like to gather more responses than ever before.  

The 2018 survey earned more engagements than in 2017, with responses from 118 different organisations, including 65 universities, 49 colleges, two research institutions and two arts and heritage organisations. Now we’re looking to exceed that total.

Author of the survey, the head of Jisc’s security operations centre, Dr John Chapman, explained:

“This questionnaire is aimed at security and IT staff and allows Jisc to be better informed about cyber security attitudes across UK education and to spot emerging trends.

“The feedback also helps us understand the needs of members, informing decisions about how to improve support for universities, colleges and research centres, while continuing to provide products and services to help preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the Janet Network.”

Data from the survey, which will take only about 15 minutes to fill in, will be collated and anonymised and a summary report will be reviewed by sector experts before it is published by Jisc later this summer.
