The changing state of education

In today’s digital age, the array of IT-related services in schools provide exciting opportunities for improving education and increasing administrative efficiency. Not to mention the trend towards online and distance learning.

But with these technologies, institutions can easily fall victim to cyber-attacks which can be enormously disruptive to a school’s operations- and the security of the sensitive data it holds.

Safety first

With scarce resources and a large bring-your-own-device culture, educational organisations, in particular, are vulnerable to targeting by cybercriminals. Last year, a hacker-simulation test proved 100% successful in breaching 50 universities across the country to access student and staff personal data, financial systems and valuable research networks.

Security made simple

Luckily, the vast majority of these cyber attacks (99% according to Lancaster University research) can be avoided through the standards of cyber hygiene covered in the UK government’s Cyber Essentials certification scheme. That’s why we offer organisations a quick path to certification and software to make sure they’re always cyber safe.

“Fast and Professional!!

From start to finish, which was incidentally very, very fast, Cybersmart were awesome to deal with. Great support over the phone and then follow-ups by email – which were instantaneous! If you are looking to get your business Cyber Essentials Certified – you can stop looking and go here!”

– Ifan Jones

“I highly recommend using CyberSmart for Cyber Essentials and GDPR certification. They were very open and straightforward to deal with and are perfect for a startup led by somebody who knows very little about IT and tech. Their review of my IT systems was quick, effortless and well supported by a knowledgeable team.”
