The education sector has become a popular and easy target for cyber criminals looking to exploit institutions already stretched and exposed.

School and university systems contain much valuable student and staff data. Couple this with the explosion in the use of digital platforms to deliver lessons, and it’s easy to see why cyber criminals view education institutions as prime targets. Our security packages are tailored to provide the protection you need in order to safeguard students and staff within your education setting.

Strengthen cyber protection in the educational sector

What you should consider

Education

The rise in data breaches

Education institutions store vast amounts of valuable information and sensitive data. This makes the sector a prime target for cyber criminals. The move to remote learning has introduced multitudes of potential weak links into the system, making cyber security more important than ever.

Education

Have your networks and applications been tested?

Networks and applications should regularly be checked for vulnerabilities. This will detect any potential security threats before they turn into cyber attacks. The increase in the use of third-party web applications for home learners means that app developers must also provide robust evidence that they are operating securely.

Education

Cyber threat detection and prevention

Do you have suitable measures in place to detect vulnerabilities in real time and prevent potential breaches across the vast networks now used by schools and universities? We deliver long term solutions to make sure your institution is secured against cyber criminals.

Education

Are you compliant?

Educational institutions must ensure compliance with relevant standards, like GDPR and PCI DSS. Our compliance team can help you understand which frameworks apply to your organisation and facilitate the certification process.

Cyber security challenges the educational sector faces

  • Lack of in-house cyber security expertise
  • Thousands of staff and students accessing internal networks remotely from personal devices
  • Safeguarding students and staff against online intrusion during video-conferencing
  • Complying with a range of regulatory security standards

Frequently Asked Questions

Threats within the cyber landscape can evolve on a daily basis, so vigilance is always necessary.

We recommend that internal and external penetration testing should take place at least once a year to ensure your networks are secure and potential threats are mitigated as far as possible.

All it takes is for one hacker to decide your institution is their next target. Unprotected institutions are like fruit ripe for the picking.

Often, malicious users can breach security and access your networks, going undetected for up to 6 months and harvesting data all the while.

It is important that you secure your network and resolve any vulnerabilities that may lead to cyber attacks in the future. Cyber attacks can lead to financial losses and reputational damage, as well as student safeguarding issues.

A partnership with a renowned security provider sends a powerful warning message to would-be hackers.
