  • Cyber Security Week

    Published 21/06/21

    We are holding a trust wide cyber security week on Monday 21st June to Friday 25th June raising awareness of cyber security. Over the week we will cover the following topics:

    • Monday: Why Cybersecurity matters to schools
    • Tuesday: Impersonation emails
    • Wednesday: Encryption
    • Thursday: Phishing
    • Friday: Password security

     

    What is cyber security?

    Cyber security is how individuals and organisations reduce the risk of cyber-attacks.

    Cyber security's core function is to protect the devices we all use (smartphones, laptops, tablets and computers), and the services we access - both online and at work - from theft or damage.

    It's also about preventing unauthorised access to the vast amounts of personal information we store on these devices, and online.

     

    Why is it important?

    Cyber security is important because smartphones, computers and the internet are now such a fundamental part of modern life, that it's difficult to imagine how we'd function without them. From online banking and shopping, to email and social media, it's more important than ever to stake steps that can prevent cyber criminals getting hold of our accounts, data, and devices.

     

    Please find below a poster that explains more about why cyber security matters to schools.
