The DfE and the NCSC are pushing schools to be more compliant with Cyber Security standards.

If you do not know where to begin with these standards, our Virtual CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) service can help.

We can provide cybersecurity services to your school on a remote, contract basis. Some of the benefits of using our service include:

Expertise

A virtual CISO brings a high level of cybersecurity expertise to the school, which can help identify and mitigate potential threats to the school’s information systems.

Flexible

A virtual CISO can work with the school on an as-needed basis, which allows for flexibility in addressing cybersecurity concerns as they arise.

Compliance

A virtual CISO can help ensure that the school is in compliance with relevant cybersecurity regulations, such as GDPR and NIST.

Cost Effective

Hiring a full-time CISO can be costly for a school. A virtual CISO can provide similar services at a lower cost, as they are not required to be on-site full-time, which can be useful for schools with limited budget.

Risk Management

A virtual CISO can help the school to identify, evaluate and prioritise potential cybersecurity risks, and implement appropriate controls to mitigate those risks, which is essential to maintain the trust of pupils, parents and staff.

Monitoring

A virtual CISO can continuously monitor the school’s network and systems to detect and respond to any potential security breaches or threats, which is important to maintain the confidentiality and integrity of the school’s data.
