How do I provide for a secure digital environment?
It is essential within an educational institution or training institute to keep the awareness of employees in the area of cyber-security up to date. Unfortunately, looking along when a password is entered because the PC screen is still being shared or sharing an account between several persons are still frequently occurring situations. These are situations that render the IT environment vulnerable.
In addition, schools also have to deal with an external threat, namely their own students. Fairly regularly, it happens that students try to manipulate, for instance, the test results or carry out a DDoS attack on the systems of the school. There is simultaneously question of an external threat: Cyber-criminals use, for instance, ransomware, phishing, and DDoS attacks to inflict damages on the education industry. An attack can cause disruptions in ICT facilities, identity fraud, and reputational damages. Threatening to disclose data is also a considerable risk.
