Protect Yourself Checklist

Hopefully you’ll now understand some of the main threats and types of cyber incident that you or your school might experience. 

Here is a quick summary of the key points and things you should do as soon as possible:

  • Review the privacy settings for your social media, professional networking site and app accounts.
  • Know who to report any unusual activity to.
  • Check your school device (where supplied) is set to receive updates automatically.
  • Remove any apps that have not been downloaded from official stores.
  • For your school software accounts, set a strong password and switch on multi-factor authentication, if available.  
  • Check that the password for your school software accounts is unique.
  • If it’s not possible to follow security advice, process or policy – flag it to your IT team.
