Cybersecurity framework

Protecting your school is obviously one of your main priorities. Leveraging proven cybersecurity frameworks, we’ll help you identify issues, detect potential threats, respond to problems and recover data if needed.

We’ll take on the responsibility of securing your systems by mapping out your data locations and controlling who has access to them. These frameworks include risk assessment and management, awareness training for staff, network security, protective technology, threat detection methods and continuous security monitoring.

Response & recovery

No organisation is completely immune to a potential data breach, even with the most advanced cybersecurity. This is where a data breach response and recovery plan are critical to meet your security, business reputation and legal obligations if such an incident should occur.

We can also put your mind at ease with data recovery plans in place for system malfunctions, accidental data loss and physical disasters.
