Cyber Security


The cyber security landscape is fluid and fast-moving. Hacking is occurring on a near industrial scale, exploiting previously unthinkable vulnerabilities almost by the second. Every new threat brings a response – often in the form of new technology. All types and sizes of organisations are exposed and have a risk.

It is not always about who would want to steal your database…

The smaller you are, the higher the risk, as larger organisations employ IT Security Experts and have more budget for top-end security systems.

DFE technology and Digital Standards for Schools

The booklet provides an easy to read overview of the Digital and technology standards provided by the DFE. It includes the following topics:

  • Cyber Security
  • Broadband
  • Wireless Network
  • Network Cabling
  • Network Switching
  • Filtering and Monitoring
  • Cloud Solutions
  • Servers and Storage

What are the risks?



  • Your data could be encrypted by Ransomware and your organisation either fails or must pay a bitcoin ransom.
  • A data breach occurs and you suffer from reputational loss, incurring loss of trust with your customers or stakeholders.
  • Financial loss for the organisation or your staff. An example here is phishing emails, fake banking or PayPal websites. There might even be an https-encrypted website that looks real. Another common example is fake invoices or payment requests that look like they come from internal staff such as the MD!
  • Large fines by the ICO.
  • Damage to your systems resulting in data loss or downtime.
  • Blackmail, threatening to expose your online behaviour to friends and colleagues.

Based on this, Breathe Technology focusses on the security of SME and Mid-Market Businesses and public sector organisations, especially councils and the Education Sector.
