With a wave of targeted cyber-attacks on schools, colleges, and MATs throughout 2021 and 2022, the Department for Education has issued guidance, aligned with that from the NCSC, on how schools can stay protected against ransomware.
It is vital that all education providers urgently review their existing defences and take the necessary steps to protect their networks from cyber-attacks. IT Teams or providers should confirm that:
Cyber Essentials is a scheme developed by the UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) that aims to help organisations protect themselves against common cyber attacks. Cyber Essentials certification is awarded to organisations that demonstrate they have put in place the necessary security controls to protect against cyber threats.
Our specialists can assist a school/academy with achieving Cyber Essentials certification by conducting an initial assessment of the organisation’s current cybersecurity practices. Based on this assessment, we can provide recommendations on any areas that require improvement, and then work with the school/academy to implement the necessary controls to meet the Cyber Essentials standards.
We can provide guidance on best practices for IT security, such as securing networks, devices, and data, and help the school/academy to identify and mitigate common cyber threats. Finally, we can provide ongoing support and guidance to ensure that the school/academy maintains its Cyber Essentials certification and stays protected against cyber attacks.
