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:

Cybersecurity expertise

A vCISO can provide you with with expert cybersecurity knowledge and experience, which can be particularly important given the increasing prevalence of cyber attacks and the growing importance of data protection and privacy regulations.

A vCISO can provide you with flexibility and scalability. We can work on a project-by-project basis or be engaged for a set amount of time, allowing you to benefit from our expertise without committing to a long-term contract.

A vCISO can help you comply with relevant data protection and privacy regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018. This can help protect your school from legal liability and reputational damage.

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.

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.
