Keynote Speaker: Sophos - Are you protected from targeted phishing attacks? Do your users know what not to click on?

The education sector have recently been targeted with a series of phishing attacks. Sophos will demonstrate how hackers are using more complex techniques to catch us out and will share best practices on how not to fall foul of the cyber criminals. Sophos have a range of solutions to stop these type of attacks but more importantly how we can stop staff and pupils from being tricked into clicking in the first place.

Meeting Sponsors


Hosted voice services and equipment.  Lots of experience in delivering voice solutions to schools.
Take a look at EduLink One, a single, integrated system for whole school engagement, communication and administration.

We support schools by giving them access to affordable technology, without compromising on quality. You can choose from a diverse portfolio of IT equipment, however if you have a specific requirement we can support you.

We understand schools have limited budgets, however with 3 Step IT we can make your IT budget go further.

You can unlock cash value in equipment you no longer need. We can value what you have and give you money for it. We collect equipment from you, data erase it to ISO 27001, 14001, 9001 standards and find it a new home. This makes it easy for you to show your accountability to GDPR compliance, whilst showing your commitment to sustainability.
