Security & Reputation

Secure and protect your reputation

From competitive state run schools to exclusive globally known independents and universities, how can education establishments protect their hard earned reputation from the potentially catastrophic impact of a cyber attack and exposure of sensitive information?

Competition and Funding

Each year sees an ever increasing competition between schools to attract the best students. Schools with the better reputation, grades and learning facilities always attract the better funding. A security breach could have critical impact on a schools reputation.

Independent schools looking after children of high net worth individuals and people of influence also face the added threat that data on these children may be targeted by those looking for leverage.

Under the Data Protection Act schools are their own data controllers and are responsible for complying with the eight principles of the act outlining the appropriate usage, storage and protection of data. As a recent example of an independent school in west London will show, there are significant repercussions for a schools' failure to comply with the act.

Safeguarding Sensitive Information

Modern networks must be resistant to modern threats. Bursars, shareholders and IT staff should be worried about network security, such as the separation of curriculum networks from administrative networks.

The loss of sensitive data belonging to children and their families, as well as school financial data, interim unpublished results of inspections, HR issues with existing or past staff etc. may have a catastrophic impact for the individuals and schoolalike, with legal ramifications for failure to comply with the data protection act.
