Cyber Essentials Certification

We have now completed our Cyber Essentials Certification for the year. Whilst this is broad in its approach, it helps to ensure that even the smallest of companies are thinking about online security and helping to keep themselves secure. As a company or school, going through the Cyber Essentials certifications helps draw you attention to the flaws in your internal processes and security. Raising these early helps prevent your system from being compromised. 

This is particularly poignant at the moment as an email phishing attack seems to be making its way across the internet, which encourages people to try and view a message they have been sent, but with a goal of harvesting your login credentials to then use these to send out more emails and perpetuate the problem. Cyber Essentials alerts you to the possibility of this and forces you to think about how you can reduce these risks satisfactorily. In this particular case, good staff training is required to help them understand how they can protect themselves and their/your data.

The smart way to evidence learning

An introduction to Evisense

Jon Twycross 0 89

Last Tuesday I ran a webinar introducing Evisense and it's features. We have previously gone into great depth when delivering our training webinars. This time we wanted to take a step back and differentiate the webinar so it was accessible to the most number of people.

Have you heard of the Virtual SEND Conference?

Dale Pickles 0 305

On the 22nd March 2019, B Squared ran its first SEND-focused conference to provide support for schools and professionals. The conference was designed to benefit the whole education sector, including mainstream teachers, SEND school staff and anyone else seeking high-quality CPD courses in SEND-related topics. Those who are familiar with B Squared understand that we don’t just follow everyone else; we look at a problem and work out the best solution.
