National Portrait Gallery gets all of its security tools on one palette
The National Portrait Gallery deployed Censornet USS as it looked to improve its security posture and achieve the government’s Cyber Essentials security standard. As one of Britain’s best-loved museums, with the most extensive collection of portraits in the world, the Gallery has a high public profile. Pair this with the fact it receives split funding from the government, public donations and receipts from ticketed exhibitions, gift shop sales and events, and it’s clear why achieving Cyber Essentials was important for the Gallery, to demonstrate its responsible approach to and practical excellence in cyber security to the public and stakeholders.
As the Gallery’s existing security contracts came to an end, Nicky Dowland, Head of Information Technology, sought a more advanced solution that would provide additional layers of security on a platform that was easy for a small IT team to manage, and that could help it achieve the Cyber Essentials security standard.
