Support for the education sector
Now more than ever, schools are relying on their IT to help with teaching and admin tasks. Your staff can play a key role in being the front line in keeping these IT services (and the information they access) secure and available.
Schools, Universities and Colleges (much like businesses) are increasingly reliant on IT and technology. Falling victim to a range of cyber activities aimed to cause harm and long term damage. As the threat to the education sector increases, losing access to technology or suffering a data breach through a cyber attack can be devastating.
We regularly produce tools, guidance and resources for all schools, universities and colleges across the South East enabling them to feel better equipped to tackle the threat posed by cyber crime.
