Cyber Security for Schools and Educational Institutions Grant Scheme

A survey of Cyber Security Breaches in 2023 revealed that educational institutions, including primary and secondary schools, are more likely to have experienced attacks on their online systems than the average UK business.

In response to this the PCC has launched a pilot in Humberside, working in partnership with the North East Business Resilience Centre (NEBRC), to build the resilience of educational institutions / schools in our area and enable them to adapt to the rapid pace of digital transformation. The NEBRC is a police-led, not-for-profit organisation that provides 24/7 cyber security support to SMEs. They offer a free membership, as well as many other cyber security services.

The new pilot grant scheme will make up to £25,000 of funding available to provide up to 50% match funding for cyber security advice delivered by NEBRC to schools and educational institutions.
