CRYPTOCard Case Study: Yorkshire & Humber Grid for Learning

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Yorkshire & Humber Grid for Learning (YHGfL) is a regional body consisting of 12 Local Authority members who in turn consist of over 2000 schools and their partners in learning. YHGfL realised that standard passwords and usernames, the traditional form of user authentication, were not enough to ensure the safety of the data and transactions the Grid provides access to. YHGfL decided to implement two-factor authentication and challenged CRYPTOCard with the task of providing a solution. This decision proved to be the right strategy, because within 12 months, the Government implemented Code of Connection and Becta standards which dictated the use of two-factor authentication for access to Government held data.
