The NCSC issue new advice to academia

After an increase of cyber attacks on the education sector, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has issued a new warning for schools, colleges and universities.

Over the last few months, cybercriminals have attacked schools and universities with ransomware as they prepare to bring students back safely after the long pause due to the pandemic. The latest victim, Newcastle University was hit with a ransomware attack just last week.

The NCSC is offering new guidance on how schools and universities can protect themselves from such attacks happening as students return to education.
