Non-compliant public organisations risk being cut off from the PSN

Organisations that are not compliant with PSN security measures after the deadline, at the end of March, and who fail to engage for help are “effectively opting out” of the PSN.

John Stubley, operations director of the PSN programme at the Cabinet Office, said the government is working closely with organisations who are finding it difficult to achieve PSN compliance by the 31 March deadline.

The Public Services Network (PSN) is the new “network of networks” that will replace the old GSi/GCSX Government Secure Network infrastructure. Being disconnected from the PSN could mean a local authority is unable to fully carry out its public duties.

Speaking at the Local Public Services ICT Summit in London today, Stubley said around 30 organisations were not yet compliant with PSN security regulations, and of those around 12 were having difficulties.

“Some of those are going to achieve it [PSN compliance], maybe not by the March deadline, but within a few weeks after,” he said.

He said the government is working with organisations who are at risk of failing compliance through one-on-one discussions with CEOs to ensure there is a commitment to do the work needed to achieve compliance.

“So, yes, the threat is still there that if these organiations don’t make any progress, then can the rest of the public sector trust them to share information?” he said.
