As the importance of digital information and networks grows, cyber security is increasingly fundamental to the success of all organisations. Universities have to develop cyber security models that target appropriate and proportionate security controls at vulnerable assets.

This report looks at approaches to implementing cyber security in higher education institutions. The report is not written from a technical perspective. Instead, it explores the management steps that are required across the whole organisation in order to be cyber secure.

It primarily focuses on the challenge of protecting against targeted, unauthorised attempts to access digital information. The report looks at approaches to evaluating these risks and how these should inform the development of risk based management of cyber security across an institution.
