Cyber Attacks on Schools

A cyber attack can have significant consequences for your organisation. In addition to disrupting systems and networks, it can be costly to repair, jeopardise security measures, severely tarnish your reputation, and result in fines.
Statistics from GOV UK show that 41% of primary schools, 63% of secondary schools and 82% of colleges identified breaches or cyber-attacks within the last 12 months. Given these numbers, it’s imperative to prioritise the protection of your school’s sensitive data.
Taking simple and cost-effective measures can substantially reduce the possibility of being hacked. Tel Group can support you through this process.

Based on our findings, we will provide recommendations on addressing these issues and securing your network.

Penwortham Girls High School Testimonial

Don’t Just take our word for it!
“There is a lot in the press about the high risk of cyber security attacks, especially in schools. We were considering whether to purchase additional insurance but were unsure how vulnerable we were. I discovered that one of LASBM’s approved partners, Tel Group, offers a Cyber Security Audit. I wanted to share this with you all as we completed it, and it was highly informative. We now have a clear picture of our network vulnerabilities – and a plan for the future. I highly recommend getting them in to complete this.
The Tel Group team really knew their stuff and were really helpful. We were shocked to see how many attempts to get into our network took place – 21,000 in just one month!! Honestly, it’s such great value for money that I thought I would share.”
