Cybercrime is a serious issue that impacts individuals and businesses alike, and it’s currently on the rise.
The simple fact is cybercriminals can strike at any time, using a wide variety of tricks and tools to gain access to your most valuable information.
This would be bad enough if it’s your own personal accounts or information but imagine the impact it would have if cybercriminals managed to hack your school website.
In addition to confidential financial information, they could access private information about pupils and their parents and cause your school some serious headaches under the EU General Data Protection Regulation framework.
This is why its so important that you take every precaution possible to secure your school website and keep it safe from cybercriminals and malicious actors.
To ensure your school website is as secure as can be, we recommend taking the following steps:
- Use a password generator to create unique and hard to crack passwords
- Assign one or two people at most to manage the digital side of things e.g. school content management and publishing
- Keep your software up to date and install updates as soon as they become available
