The Janet security policy was first developed when the network and security landscape was very different to today. Although it has been updated from time to time (most recently in 2018 when version 4 was published), these changes have been relatively minor.
With the huge increase in damaging attacks in recent years and months, the time is right to review the policy and to consult on additional principles that can help best protect Janet-connected organisations, by balancing security and operability and enable the UK to be a world leader in education and research.
Our consultation is live until the end of September and this session is an opportunity to find out more, why we are updating the Janet security policy and to ask any questions you may have about the proposals.
We will also be announcing a Jisc cyber threat intelligence group that we are setting up to allow for technical sharing of threat intelligence across the education and research sectors.
