Nearly half of all UK organisations experienced some form of cyber-attack last year. This means that cyber security is now a key priority across all UK schools and academies. Data protection, business continuity and staff wellbeing are just some of the areas that are significantly adversely affected in the event of a cyber breach, causing mass disruption and stress.

With our Cyber Security Professional programme, we offer schools and academies the opportunity to help protect themselves against cyber attacks and to be better equipped and minimise the damage should one occur.

The programme includes: Understanding how attacks occur, how to identify and act upon system vulnerability, though to incident response planning and implementing contingency measures.
