The NI Cyber Security Centre is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non compliance with the accessibility regulations

  • Some links do not have focus visible styles.This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.7 (Focus Visible).

We plan to fix these issues by September 2020.
