Cybersecurity attacks are on the rise. As schools continue to increase their dependence on technology, there has never been a more mission-critical moment to ensure your students and staff are protected against ransomeware and malware attacks.
Our goal is to keep administrators focused on student learning instead of spending time trying to keep up with emerging threats. From cybersecurity assessments to dark web scanning, we can help you understand where your organization is most vulnerable. Additionally, solutions like Multi-Factor Authentication can help you reach cybersecurity insurance compliance.
See how the engineering experts at Five Star were able to help a small, rural school district that had just experienced a widespread ransomware event involving both critical infrastructure and end user devices. Read the case study here.
Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
Aside from lowering your cybersecurity insurance premiums, one easy way to prevent unwanted account access is by implementing multi-factor authentication for privileged users. Those with access to sensitive information like Superintendents, Domain Administrators, Business Managers, and others with remote access to the environment now have an added layer of protection & security.

An easy way to keep your staff on their toes is by running quarterly phishing campaigns. These are designed to look like potentially harmful emails but provide your team insight into who may need additional training without unleashing malware on the network.
Staff Cybersecurity Training
We know your district’s educators are likely all over the map when it comes to cybersecurity knowledge. Our experts can create awareness around best practices, help your staff identify common areas of cyber infiltration, and aid in ongoing trainings throughout the school year.
Next Generation Endpoint Protection
One of the most common points of entry for bad actors is through staff computers. Installing user endpoint detection and response (EDR) software across all devices can identify, quarantine, and eradicate threats before they become network-wide issues.
Whether you need to upgrade your hardware or begin your cloud backup journey, our experts can help you backup your data the right way using the 3-2-1-1 rule. 3 copies of data, on 2 different media, with 1 copy off-site (encrypted cloud backup) and 1 copy offline, air-gapped, or immutable.
Vulnerability & Dark Web Scans
Examining critical infrastructure for looming security risks within your environment is vital, and knowing what passwords or other information already on the dark web can inform where more training is required.
