EMCRC academic partner recognised by NCSC for top cyber security education

Alongside the East Midlands based university, two more UK universities have been recognised by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) for promoting cyber security education on campus and beyond.


Three universities have been recognised by the UK’s leading cyber experts for showing their commitment to delivering first-rate cyber security education on campus and beyond.


The successful institutions are the latest to be named Academic Centres of Excellence in Cyber Security Education (ACEs-CSE) by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) – a part of GCHQ.


EMCRC academic partner De Montfort University and Royal Holloway, University of London, have both attained Gold recognition for their approach to promoting cyber security excellence, and Kingston University London is the latest institution to receive a Silver award.

The universities demonstrated a range of activities that promote cyber skills, including offering NCSC-certified degrees, training opportunities for staff and initiatives to engage their communities such as cyber taster days for Scouts and Guides.


This autumn, as young people start applying to higher education institutions, the NCSC is encouraging prospective students to consider whether their choices will help to develop their cyber skills, as they remain in high demand across the UK jobs market.
