Cyber Security for Schools and Colleges

According to a recent report from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) more than 80 percent of UK schools have experienced at least one cyber attack. While many of these breaches came from sophisticated hackers actively targeting the education sector, a significant percentage were the result of unauthorised access by staff and pupils.

So what can you do to safeguard your students’ sensitive information and protect your systems and networks from cyber attack or data exposure?

Turn to a trusted cyber and IT security expert with years of experience helping schools and academies with their cyber security. We can help you with your cyber security planning, ongoing protection, user education and compliance auditing.

And if you are the victim of a cyber security attack, we are with you every step of the way.

How We Can Help

Cyber security review

We can carry out a thorough audit of your systems and processes to test for security flaws and GDPR compliance and make recommendations for improvement.

User awareness training

We can help educate your staff so they don’t fall victim to phishing emails, social engineering attacks and other threats.

Cyber security policies

We can help you devise and execute a cyber-security policy that includes everyone from the Senior Leadership Team to classroom teachers and administrators. A formal breach and response plan will help give your Senior Leadership Team the confidence that your organisation has carefully considered your vulnerabilities.

Breach response

If your data or systems have been breached, we can help you formulate the correct response in line with GDPR requirements. This can include everything from data breach response plans to impact mitigation and urgent on-site assistance, and help in investigating, limiting and rectifying the damage
