Cohort company MASS has supported The Leys and St Faith’s schools in becoming some of the first schools to achieve Cyber Essentials certification.

The Leys, the only co-educational boarding and day school in Cambridge, and St Faith’s, the largest co-educational prep school in Cambridge, identify data protection as a high priority and pursued the certification to demonstrate that they take cyber security seriously.  

Cyber Essentials certification, which is now a prerequisite in bidding for Government work, is primarily focussed at business and aims at helping protect organisations from common cyber security threats, demonstrating their understanding and approach to the issue.
