In May 2022, 805 schools from across the United Kingdom took part in the second nationwide audit of cybersecurity in schools. The audit was run in partnership between the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC, part of GCHQ) and LGfL - the findings and analysis are now available below.
The reports below outline the threats facing schools today, the measures that are in place (or not!), how effective they are and how quickly schools have recovered from cyber-incidents. The second LGfL report includes further guidance and analysis from our experts and international partners, with next steps to strengthen protections across a sector, which is being increasingly being targeted.
