Protect your school from cyber-attacks & ransomware infection.
Join our webinar, Thursday 5th November | 11.00am
In August 2020, the Department for Education and National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) shared updated guidance with schools following an increasing number of cyber-attacks involving ransomware infecting the education sector. The cyber-attacks appear to be taking advantage of system weaknesses such as unpatched software or poor authentication and “have had a significant impact on the affected education provider’s ability to operate effectively and deliver services.”
What do schools need to do?
The latest guidance implicitly states the actions that all education providers must ensure they are protected against the effects of a possible cyber-attack or ransomware infection. Education providers should urgently review their existing defences and take necessary steps to protect their networks from cyber-attacks. The ability to restore systems and recover data from backups is also vital.
