Penetration testing for schools

Image

The security of your school's IT network, systems and data is fundamental. Whether it’s confidential student data, financial information or other sensitive data, all must be protected; and with GDPR enforcement on the horizon these issues have never been more relevant. At the same time cyber attacks have never been more prevalent. Hackers and cyber criminals are also targetting schools for financial gain; ransomware attacks demanding bitcoins and botnet bitcoin mining operations can bring IT to a standstill.

CSE and Caretower Partnership

CSE have partnered with Caretower in order to be able to offer our customers security assessments and penetration testing through an experienced provider. This will provide CSE customers with visibility into their risk exposure, the ability to remediate vulnerabilities and improve security posture. Schools will gain independent assurance of the security of their data and networks, minimising the risk of cyber attacks, network downtime and data breaches.

How we can help

Caretower help organisations identify vulnerabilities within their security systems and provide an action plan to help prevent security breaches occurring in the long run.
So how does this work? They act as an internal or external hacker and try to create ways to gain access to your infrastructure and identify any security risks. They check how robust the security systems are and create a continuous recommended action plan that will prevent the business from being targeted.

The penetration testing consultants hold industry leading certifications and are widely experienced in conducting assessments for all types of organisations.
