Are security assessments needed within education settings?
All types of business and organisations are at risk from cyber attacks and common threats. Different types of businesses are targeted for different reasons, and attacks on educational establishments particularly universities are common. In addition, universities, schools, colleges and other education providers commonly hold confidential and potentially sensitive data on students, the compromise of which can be detrimental and is subject to specific Data Protection/GDPR rules.
The principles of conducting an assessment for education settings are the same as for businesses. We’ll understand your organisation, the data you hold, the systems you use to access it and a number of other key pieces of information, assess and explain your risks, and provide recommendations and a security road-map tailored to your specific risks and needs.
