26th March 2020NCSC cyber security advice for schools

A new blog is available from the schools team at NCSC (part of GCHQ), that provides up to date guidance for schools on cyber security advice, resources and training.

Now more than ever, schools are relying on their online IT and ed-tech services to help with teaching and admin tasks. Staff can play a key role in keeping these IT services (and the information they access) secure and available.

NEN- the Education Network (that SEGfL is part of) and NCSC developed some ‘cards’ that have gone out to schools that highlight practical tips that schools can do to become more cyber secure. A soft copy of the cards can be download from here

There are also tips on staying safe while working from home. NCSC are also developing some training packages from teachers which will be available soon.
