SAFEGUARDING AND SPECIAL NEEDS ARE AT THE FOREFRONT OF OUR WORK IN THE EDUCATION SECTOR

At Filestream we work with schools, colleges and universities across the UK to securely streamline their document management allowing them to deliver on tasks which require so much time and dedication.

For more than 30 years we’ve been one of the top providers of secure, electronic document management software. The education sector is an area of supreme importance to us.

We already work with many of your colleagues including the University of Hull, Coventry University, Cirencester College and numerous academy trusts. We want to support more educational establishments and help them to be more efficient, effective and more secure in how they manage online paperwork.

Why is this important? It’s important because of the clear and present danger of online attack in several forms. Evidence shows this type of risk is growing.

According to the Cyber Securities Breaches Survey 2021, looking just at education, a large percentage of schools and colleges are experiencing cyber-attacks. Of those organisations which took part in that survey:

  • 84 per cent of primary schools suffered phishing attacks.
  • 86 per cent of secondary schools suffered phishing attacks.
  • 91 per cent of further education colleges experienced phishing attacks.
     

Potentially far more dangerous are attacks involving viruses, spyware, malware and ransomware. These can be costly to deal with and hugely detrimental to any educational establishment with repercussions which can lead to legal action.

In the same survey it revealed these types of attacks have already happened to:

  • 22 per cent of primary schools.
  • 16 per cent of secondary schools.
  • 35 per cent of further education colleges.
