Cyber Security - Further resources and Webinars available

Further to MI Sheet 56/21 regarding The NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre) responding to further targeted ransomware attacks on the education sector by cyber criminals, please find further useful resources and webinars below:

The National Cyber Security Centre has developed a new school staff training resource in partnership with the education sector. This blog explains the product and directs you to the training page where you can access the two school staff training formats. This free training package joins our list of cyber security for schools resources developed specifically for the sector.

Alongside this the national Cyber PROTECT team are running a series of weekly webinars beginning next week and running until the end of the school year in July. They are aimed at school or education staff and people need to sign up using an education email address as access will be vetted and anyone who joins using a different email address will not be admitted. All events will be using the same slide deck, provide the same information and be open to people from anywhere in the UK. These events are separate from the NCSC schools' materials highlighted above (the NCSC tool is a 'self-delivery' package intended to be run internally within schools). You can register for these events using the Eventbrite link below.
