Security is everything, from data protection and GDPR to your reputation, no one wants to suffer an avoidable data or security breach. Security is not just about your IT systems though, most security breaches are as a result of targeting staff, and therefore it’s important to ensure you have the right tools, training and support in place to equip your team to help repel these attacks.
Remember, most cyber-attacks are not targeted, they are opportunistic. Attackers just consistently target all emails, people, and systems they know about to see what gives. With tools such as password management, staff awareness training and testing and dark web monitoring, you can help protect your staff and your school.

Dark Web Monitoring - Proactive Protection and peace of mind
What is Dark Web Monitoring?
Are your staff’s credentials available on the dark web? Thousands of email addresses, passwords and other sensitive data land on the dark web every day, creating risk for your staff and your organisation - without proactive monitoring, you will not know you are vulnerable until it’s too late.
Cygnet’s Dark Web Monitoring helps protect you by actively searching for information on your systems and staff. Data leaks, breaches, and hacks across the globe constantly contribute to this data. How many websites have your details on file?
We help find information within the Dark Web markets, data dumps and other sources, and alert you to potential trouble fast, giving you the opportunity to act before criminals do.

Password Management for schools
What is Password Management?
A password management tool helps your team avoid easy-to-guess and repeated passwords. It provides a dedicated, secure place to store and retrieve both personal and shared passwords without having to remember or even know any of them. A website, browser plugins and mobile app mean your team will have instant access to the passwords they need anytime, anywhere.
With encryption, auditing, reporting and optional two-factor authentication, Password Management puts you in control.
Passwords are not just for IT. Alarm codes, door entry or even padlock codes all need to be stored somewhere for the relevant staff to access, why not centralize everything?

Social Engineering Awareness Training for your school
What is Social Engineering Awareness Training (SEAT)?
What is Social Engineering?
Ensuring staff have the tools and know-how to identify social engineering attacks can be critical to protecting your school.
With tailored training and phishing simulations, you can make sure staff are aware and vigilant when it comes to this type of attack.
The included modules contain bite-sized videos followed by multiple choice quizzes to validate understanding.
Training sessions are delivered as campaigns (a collection of modules that fit your requirement) and can be sent straight to the inbox or accessed via a personal portal.
Training and testing your staff
The Phishing simulation program will help you identify the weak areas in your team’s awareness and highlight where further training should be directed.
Phishing emails (emails pretending to be from a trusted source) are sent from our system at predefined times to select staff and any actions taken are recorded. If staff click on any of the links or provide any information they are notified that this was a phishing simulation and advice is provided via a short video.
Both the training and phishing simulation programs include reporting features enabling you to monitor staff progress and awareness.
