Schools IT Security Self Audit

The use of IT in schools is developing very quickly and there is evidence that we must develop a much better understanding of security and the protection of personal data in particular. Education is not alone in this. As yet high-profile newspaper exposés cover other areas of the public sector, but our time could come.

This IT self-audit, published by Kent County Council, offers headteachers a tool to investigate the level of security awareness in their schools and to indicate policy, technical and training measures that may be required.
