Cyber security

We work to protect the Janet Network and connected organisations, to help you get the most from Jisc membership

We help you in three ways

We protect the network

We run the world-class Janet Network on behalf of research and education in the UK.

Because of this, it’s vital we protect it – detecting and resolving issues that might affect availability, in an effort to ensure seamless access for users.

We protect your organisation

As well as protecting the Janet Network, we also protect your own IT estate. We can respond to cyber security incidents and work to mitigate them, to help protect your reputation and safeguard users.

For example, if you are a Janet-connected organisation experiencing a cyber security incident caused by DDoS or malware, we can respond to you via our security operation centre, and work with you on a one-to-one basis to mitigate potential damage from the threat.

Monitor your network activity

If you’re connected to the Janet Network, you can view traffic on your connection through our cyber security portal. The portal also gives details of alerts or DDoS mitigations, whether in the past or currently in progress.
