Cyber Security for the Education Sector

Trustmarque Cyber Security

All education organisations have been urged to review their existing cyber security provisioning and take the necessary steps to protect their networks from attacks. Cyber criminals are capitalising on the pandemic as students are using a greater number of devices to access their learning, but we can help protect your organisation. Find out more and book a Cyber Security Workshop to uncover your risks and improve your security posture.

Backup for the Education Sector

Recent cyber-attacks appear to be taking advantage of system weaknesses such as unpatched software or poor authentication, which will severely affect the ability to operate and deliver services. Safeguarding your data through a comprehensive backup ensures that all education providers are protected against the effects of a possible cyber-attack or ransomware infection.

Case study: University of Winchester stays on point with their cybersecurity

Since the pandemic, universities have faced ongoing attacks from cybercriminals who mistakenly see these institutions as ‘a soft touch’. Not only are they increasingly seen as sources of valuable personal information, but attackers also know that disruptions are hugely damaging to a university’s reputation. The attackers aim to swiftly take down telephone systems, student databases, and library resources for days, if not weeks, stalling students’ progress. Attackers are under the impression that this makes them prime targets for attacks and ransomware.

“The work with Trustmarque and LogPoint opened our eyes to what could and should be monitored. My advice would be don’t be selective in what you monitor. Monitor everything, even things like chip and PIN machines on your network need to be accounted for, not just computers in the library.” 

Nigel Walters, Senior Systems Specialist, University of Winchester
