How Good is Your Cyber Security?

In February 2024, some UK universities experienced cyberattacks that disrupted their IT systems and network connectivity. The two main affected institutions were The University of Cambridge and the University of Manchester. The University of Wolverhampton also reported an attack, but at the time of writing it is unclear if it is from the same hacking group.


These attacks show how important cyber security is for educational institutions, particularly with the sensitive data schools have to store. All institutions need to be aware of the potential threats and take cyber security seriously by implementing best practices and investing in adequate protection. Cyber security is not only a technical issue, but also a human one, as staff and students need to be trained and educated on how to avoid falling victim to phishing, malware or ransomware.
