IT Support for Education

The education sector is becoming increasingly digitised. Technology is categorically changing the learning process, whether that means teaching interactive lessons or better connecting staff and students.

But with many education institutions taking a tech-first approach to teaching, it begs the question of whether they are protecting their IT infrastructure from harm. Are you? The average learning environment has a network of interconnected computers, tablets, and mobile devices—all of which could be potential access points for cybercriminals. Therefore, you need to protect your network with an IT consultant with vast experience in the education sector. Like BCN.

5 core challenges for the education sector


Keeping Students Safe

It’s critical that you carefully manage the four C’s: content, contact, conduct, and commerce. In doing so, you’ll safeguard students from harmful online material. Speak to BCN’s education IT support consultants, and we’ll identify any potential risk areas. We can also educate your staff and students on using technology, identifying risks, and mitigating issues.


Supporting your Student and Staff Success

A reliable IT infrastructure affords you more time to do what you do best: inspire the next generation. As such, BCN Group ensures you avoid outages and IT issues by providing proactive support, managing your entire ecosystem.


GDPR Compliance

You’re responsible for the data you collect. So, naturally, the larger your institution is, the more rigorous your data governance policy. Our experts will start by ensuring your organisation’s data storage, security, and management systems are well established. What’s more, with our help, you’ll stay compliant with any relevant regulatory standards, thereby reducing the chance of penalties.


Data Security

Cyberattacks aren’t just on the rise; they’re also growing in sophistication. Therefore, it’s critical to protect all your financial and personal information (including student, staff, and donor information). Speak to BCN, and we’ll ensure your data never falls victim to avoidable attacks and breaches with Cyber Essentials training.Whatever the scenario, we’ll give you the tools necessary to bounce back.


Digital Transformation

We know how demanding it is to run an educational institution, so it’s understandable that your IT infrastructure isn’t front of mind. However, slow technology and outdated communications could be inhibiting your productivity. If that’s the case, partner with BCN and rest assured that we’ll coordinate, fully integrate, and update your IT infrastruce.
