18 Mar 2019 11:04 AM | Diana Murase (Administrator)

CompliSpace recently released a white paper identifying top 12 key risks for schools.  It is no surprise, that 'IT Systems and Security Failures' was right near the top of the list.  They suggest that schools need to be thinking of 'when' not 'if' a breach make take place.  They identified common operational risks as

  • systems/network failures due to power fluctuations
  • hardware/LAN failure
  • loss of data
  • poorly trained staff
  • over dependence on outsourced IT
  • poor management practices and process
  • inadequate use of anti-virus/anti-spam systems

They suggest the following key steps to assist in addressing the risks:

  • engage a cybersafety expert to conduct a review and identify weaknesses
  • conduct scenario based drills
  • develop and test critical incident response/business interruption plan
  • review policies to address impacts on staff and students safety and welfare
