Episode 003 The KYND #StopTheBad Podcast: Fraud and cyber vulnerabilities in UK independent schools

September 24, 2020

Following the recent release of KYND’s research into "Fraud and vulnerabilities impacting the Top 200 UK Independent Schools", produced with Crowe UK and the University of Portsmouth's Centre for Counter Fraud Studies, we invited KYND's Head of Product and Operations, Tom Fry, and our special guest Eoghan Daly, Crowe UK's Director of Forensic Services, to analyse the disturbing findings of the research and share their expert advice to help you and your business counteract the increasing risks of similar threats.

The areas covered include: 

  • What exactly makes private schools a particularly attractive niche for cybercriminals
  • Email impersonation scams and what steps to take to avoid falling victim to email spoofing
  • The ever-evolving threat of ransomware 
  • The risks of running outdated software or services with well-known vulnerabilities 

At KYND, we're always here to help, so if you're concerned about any of the areas discussed in our podcast, and want to know on how we can help your business stay protected - please get in touch.
