Frequently Asked Questions

Take a look at our common Cyber Security questions and answers below!

What is a Cyber Security course in schools?

Cyber security is about protecting the devices we use and the services we access online from theft or damage. It will help prevent unauthorised access to personal data stored on the devices.

A Cyber Security course in schools teaches school staff the necessary skills and knowledge to help protect against threats and cyber-attacks.

Why is cyber security training important in schools? Cyber Security training is important in schools because many schools and colleges are being impacted by cyber incidents and poor cyber security can affect a school’s ability to function, its reputation, and its legal obligations to keep personal data safe.
