Accessibility Policy

The NCSC is committed to providing facilities and resources suitable for people with disabilities. As part of this commitment this website has been built along internationally recognised accessible website guidelines produced by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and generally working to AA level of WCAG 2.0 guidelines (or Priority 1 and 2 checkpoints).

This page provides information on ways that this website has been written to assist users to identify helpful features of this site. Optimising the level of accessibility will be an ongoing endeavour to help make the site as open and available to all as is possible.


The website has been designed to optimise viewing of content on desktop, tablet and mobile devices.

Navigation of this site is accomplished via:

  • Links across the top and bottom of each page
  • Navigation within each page
  • Breadcrumb navigation menu above the page content

Font size

The NCSC recognises the requirement for some visitors to view site elements larger than their default size, therefore the browser Zoom feature can be used to increase the size of site content on your screen.

PDF documents

While wherever possible we have provided a HTML version of content on this website, some content is provided in Adobe Acrobat PDF format only. For information on how to access this content with specialist browsers please visit
