After a spate of cyber attacks and data leaks made the headlines last year, the need for greater cyber security became apparent. It can be difficult to address because technology changes so rapidly and the threat is always evolving, leaving many schools unsure where to start. The best defence is to keep as up to date as possible with any potential issues and that’s why we’ve teamed up with the South East Cyber Protect Team to run a free workshop for schools. We’ll be addressing a range of cyber security issues within schools and will provide advice on how to protect your school from cyber-crime.
Cyber security is a complex area and that’s why we’re so delighted to have Chris White running this workshop. Chris works for the South East Regional Organised Crime Unit which covers the Thames Valley, Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex and he is part of a number of regional units which provide cyber security support across the UK. All of his advice and expertise is delivered in line with the National Cyber Security Strategy 2016-2021.
The workshop will cover the key issues that schools and individuals are likely to encounter, including:
- Personal and corporate security
- Identity theft
- Cyber frauds and scams
- Phishing, smishing and Vishing
- Password management
- Social engineering tactics
If you’re worried about your school’s cyber security or want to make sure you’re on top of the latest threats, our free workshop will give you a chance to learn from the experts.
The event takes place on Tuesday 12th June from 10.00 – 12.00 at Shoreham Airport, in the Pashley Suite.
