Cyber Essentials Accreditation for the 20/21 funding year.
From Thursday 10 December, feconnect will be replaced by ESFA Communities.
Feconnect is being replaced by a more robust, accessible service. ESFA Communities is now live and so feconnect will be read only from Thursday 10 December 2020. From this date it will not be possible to create or reply to topics or posts. Feconnect users will need to create a new ESFA communities account to post, reply or subscribe for email alerts.
You will need to check your condition of funding agreement documentation for 2020/21 as most still includes the following:
Use of Cyber Essentials Scheme certification, or any subsequent updated document, are mandated; the Contractor will endeavour to meet the requirements of Cyber Essentials for the 2020/21 Funding Year and present the results to the Department on request.
With Cyber Essentials Plus requirement for 21/22 do you know if that means by the August 1st 2021 we should have Cyber Essentials Plus in place or we should be working to it and have achieved it by July 31st 2022. Just working out how to organise our renewals for this year.
