Linking Cyber and Accessibility Project

Linking Cyber and Accessibility

Last updated 1 May 2024


We are trying to make it easy for people to learn how to stay safe and secure online. We are doing this by providing accessible guidance and a range of ways to learn and we have recruited disabled people to help us extend the reach of our work. Contact to find out more about our project and how we could support you:


We regularly meet with National Cyber Security Centre staff (NCSC), translating their guidance into accessible formats such as Easy Read, BSL and community languages and to align with their campaign. Other partners who support our work are the Scottish Government, Police Scotland the Take Five campaign and the wider Cyber Scotland Partnership. Here are some translated resources, please share:

The project has an Advisory Group of partners and organisations that meets four times a year to ensure we are working in a joined-up way to close any gaps in information about cyber resilience and digital accessibility, and extend our reach with training and alternative formats.

We are grateful to the Scottish Government Cyber Resilience Unit which supports this project.
