After suffering a security incident over a bank holiday in August 2023 and having all of their systems locked out, we assisted a Scottish private school in the recovery of these systems.

The college had previously worked with us to ensure all of their systems were backed up to the cloud with air gaps. We were able to ensure the systems were recovered prior to the incident, assist in tracing the vulnerabilities and patching these accordingly.

This was all completed without any data loss or a drop in service quality to the wider school and we received a huge thank you from the college team.


We continue to use the cloud backup solution on these premises, have increased the school’s security posture, and have implemented new security policies to continue to mitigate risk.
