Protect your school from cyber threats, improve operational IT performance and identify the right technology for your school.
Some schools are increasingly aware of the growing information security risks, but many are not, and most are ill equipped to adequately manage them due to their relative size, budget constraints or limited security resources. Schools need access to experts who specialise in the wide variety of threats they face, who can offer tailored services to their needs.
As a result, many schools are calling on 9ine’s specialist education cyber services to support their information security activities in a way that is proportionate to the available resources and known risks.
Cyber Vulnerability & Penetration testing provides an overview of the risk profile of the school to a successful cyber attack. Following 9ine’s own education vulnerability framework, we seek out vulnerabilities and exploit them through penetration testing to evaluate your school’s defences. Our report provides a prioritised list of security recommendations, next steps and actions.
A comprehensive 1000 point check of the security, configuration and operational performance of your school’s systems. The assessment evaluates the security status of the school’s IT architecture against the NCSC 10 Steps to Cyber Security - a globally recognised best practice framework, including analysis of vulnerabilities that could be breached and potentially lead to the deletion, modification, or theft of data.
The report includes a benchmark against compliance to the Cyber Essentials Plus certification, providing a pathway to achieve the Cyber Essentials certificate. A programme of work provides a schedule of work that is needed to harden your defences.
Following a modular security framework, 9ine proactively leads your team through a security hardening programme that is regularly evaluated, audited and tested. 9ine’s Security & Systems Essentials subscription provides you with clarity and transparency, so your school can have confidence that its IT budget will improve performance and support school operations whilst enhancing security to evolving threats.
