Technology (and secure data systems) form a crucial part of school life. If systems (or school data) become compromised it can have a devastating and disruptive impact on school operation.
Modern cloud systems are becoming inherently more secure by design; however no tech solution is 100% effective. Often the best defence are staff who are aware of the main cyber risks and threats. School staff can make a vital contribution to their schools’ cyber defences by following some key cybersecurity steps.
This presentation is non-technical in nature and has been designed to give education professionals an understanding of why the school sector is being targeted by criminals, and outlines some key ways in which schools can reduce their risks and improve their cybersecurity resilience.
