Tackling school cybersecurity challenges

A terrifying 78% of schools experienced at least one type of cyber-incident in the past twelve months, according to the latest government survey.

At the start of the 2023/24 academic year, the National Cyber Security Centre warned of a time of change for schools.

They are now experiencing attacks more typically associated with businesses, because their defences tend to be less robust than commercial organisations.

Why is this happening? Schools hold quantities of what can be highly sensitive personal data, so they are becoming an attractive target for hackers.

Typical IT security challenges in schools

  • Ransomware attacks – in 2022, confidential SEN, student passport scans, staff pay and contract information were leaked from 14 schools after those impacted refused to pay up.
  • Phishing emails sent to staff and students that seem to come from legitimate people or organisations, but instead contain malicious links that can unleash a virus or cause someone to release sensitive data by accident.
  • Malware, however introduced into a school network, can be very bad news. It is software deliberately designed to compromise systems, and can cause network failures, system and software lockouts, leak or delete blocks of data, and more.
  • “Shadow” IT – One way that malware reaches a school system is via vulnerabilities created by unauthorised use of personal devices such as phones, tablets and laptops, which are not protected in the same way as school-managed devices.
  • Human error can be inadvertent additional cause of cyber security issues and the introduction of malware. Triggers range from copying data onto unprotected home PCs or USB sticks, poor personal password hygiene, and more.

Keeping cybersecurity measures constantly under management and with 24/7 monitoring is important.

Fostering understanding and safe behaviours by all system users is just as vital.
