Secure Schools is a team of cyber security professionals and educationalists, with a passion for empowering schools with technology and also keeping children as well as young adults safe in education. Jill as well as Paul founded Secure Schools to tackle the growing challenge of cyber security in UK schools and also trusts. Their approach is to enable schools and also trusts to take a risk-based approach to cyber security, with risks identified by the UK Government combined with their very own assessments, without introducing barriers to learning.
Accelerated by the NCSC Cyber Accelerator Programme.
We were selected for the fourth cohort of the UK's National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) Cyber Accelerator Programme. The Accelerator supports the growth of start-up cyber companies who aim to bring new 'better, faster as well as cheaper' security products to market. During this programme we ramped up our technical capabilities as well as launched our school cyber security app.
We built the UK's first cyber security management application committed for schools and also trusts.
We've built an online portal and also web application that provides schools with all the tools as well as training they need to operate a successful cyber security programme and build cyber resilience. Our app has actually been built specifically for schools with role-based access to support school leaders with risk assessments, ICT teams (or IT service providers) with secure device configuration as well as staff training management for HR and also operations personnel.
