Resources For Schools
The NCSC provide a number of resources for schools which has driven our strategy for Cyber Security at Fairtech Solutions, including practical tips for everyone working in education.
Whilst implementing recommending technology solutions is important to reduce your risk of a Cyber attack, it is also imperative to implement best practices within your schools to your users.
Including, but not limited to:
Downloadable copies of Cyber Security Information cards can be found at NCSC.GOV.UK and will allow you to circulate practical tips for your staff which can work alongside vital training tools, such as Cyber Security Awareness Training, to prevent staff engaging with malicious phishing content.
Alongside our Cyber Essentials guidance which is advised by the NCSC, we also direct our customers to their ‘Exercise in a Box’ simulation tool – This allows you to work with management teams and key stakeholders working to reduce your schools cyber risk to assess the current risk status of your school.
You can access this free service to open up a number of simulations which can advise on the solutions you should look to invest in as a school to become protected against a successful Cyber Attack – all of these solutions can be found on our Cyber Security page.
Working with your board members and management teams
It is essential to get the backing and support of your wider management teams when implementing a strategy to increase your protection against a cyber attack. The NCSC have resources that are designed to encourage discussions around cyber safety, cyber essentials and open up discussions between your technical teams and your board members.
