Checklists in navy text by Data Protection Education. Data Protection Services badge.  The DPE Knowledge Bank on a laptop screen

Our customers all have access to the checklists in our Knowledge Bank user portal.  We have checklists for all areas of compliance around data protection and cyber security, as well as some practical ones for schools and trusts.  But why are checklists a good tool?

A cyber incident review is a process or analysis undertaken after a cyber security incident or cyber attack has occurred.  It involves analysing the event in detail to understand what happened, why it happened and how it can be prevented in the future.

We have previously written about the Cyber Resilience Centres which are 9 regional centres in the UK which were part of a Home Office initiative to help strengthen the reach of cyber resilience across the community.
We recently met with Daniel Sykes, the Cyber Crime Protect and Prepare Office for the South East Cyber Resilience Centre, to ask
about how their services can help small businesses, schools and multi academy trusts.

While visiting organisations during our data walks we will have a conversation with you about how printers are used in your organisation, we will discuss access controls and have a look around the print area and any recycling facilities.  Printing can be expensive as the cost of paper and toner has risen, but it can also be costly to your cyber resilience and your data breach security.
