About The Webinar

Cyber Security and Data Privacy: Practical Steps to Stay Safe Online | Secondary

This webinar will provide headteachers, governors, school leaders and teachers with practical guidance and support on recognising and responding to cyber security threats and malicious attempts to access data, and better managing data privacy online.

It’s reported that the summer months often see a rise in ransomware attacks against education settings in the UK, as cybercriminals turn their attention to a sector that is focused on delivering exam results and preparing for the return of students for the new academic year. Given that settings hold large amounts of sensitive personal data on pupils, parents and staff, all of this must be kept safe and secure.

In this webinar, Gary Henderson, cyber security specialist and director of IT, explores how settings can defend themselves against cyber attacks focused on accessing personal data, understanding the link between cyber security and data privacy and how settings can seek to manage their digital footprint.

Learning Outcomes

  • Exploring a range of examples in relation to cyber attacks so that schools can be aware of the approaches cyber criminals may use to access personal information.

  • Understanding the indicators that suggest an email or text message may not be safe to open or respond to.

  • Recognising the link between cyber security and data privacy, and where cyber criminals get their data for their cyber attacks.

  • Understanding the concepts of smishing and vishing, as well as the practical steps to avoid falling victim to these types of cyber attacks.

  • Appreciating how to manage data privacy and tips for ensuring a more considered digital footprint online.
