Cyber on a Shoestring  – THE Cyber Event of the Year

On December 7th, Derbyshire County Council’s Education Data Hub service will be hosting what promises to be one of the largest educational, cyber security, and online safety events of the year – ‘Cyber on a Shoestring’.

Working with the National Cyber Security Centre, the Department for Education, Police Cyber Resilience Centres and industry leads such as IASME, SWGfL, and the U.K. Safer Internet Centre, we will be showing schools, colleges, academies, and nurseries that effective online safety and cyber security need not cost the earth…

“It’s not the money you spend… it’s the actions you take”

This last year has seen an unprecedented rise in the number of cyber-attacks within local authorities, public and the private sector.  Hackers don’t discriminate as to who they target and schools and nurseries are seen as particularly vulnerable, leading to the loss, theft or wrongful sharing of sensitive data.

Digital safeguarding is one of the largest concerns facing schools and nurseries right now, all the more so, when we consider the rise in remote and virtual working following the Covid 19 pandemic.

Cyber on a Shoestring is free of charge and promises to help you access free resources to safeguard and protect your setting.

Places are limited – please click here to book your place via Eventbrite.

Please see our finalised agenda below – I think you’ll agree we have some amazing speakers for the day.
