Annual Certificate in Cyber Security for Staff

Course Duration: 1 hour and 30 minutes (approx.)

In June 2021, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) issued a warning to schools and colleges about the unprecedented levels of cyber-attacks. All staff play a major role in developing and implementing cyber security protection measures in order to stop criminals from stealing valuable information and sensitive data held on pupils, parents, governors and staff themselves.

This course provides you with the knowledge and skills to understand what cyber security is, the different types of cyber threats and the measures you can take to protect your organisation from harm.

Split into bite-sized modules, the training has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost-effective and most time-efficient manner. It has been produced in high-quality remote video CPD format which is accessible on any device, any time, anywhere.

Created by KryptoKloud, an independent cyber operations and intelligence company, this course is split into six modules with a knowledge assessment at the end to help you evidence your learning.

Learning objectives:

  • Understanding why the education sector is a common target for cyber criminals and the motivations behind a cyber-attack.
  • Recognising what is meant by a digital identity, how much information exists about us online and how easy it is to leave a digital footprint which can be exploited by criminals.
  • Identifying different types of cyber crime including phishing, malware and ransomware attacks and the protection measures that can be taken.
  • Understanding what constitutes a data breach, what impact it can have and the actions to take following the potential loss or theft of data.
  • Recognising the role of legislation and the NCSC in cyber security and building an awareness of protection procedures which can be implemented across any digital environment.
