The recent pandemic has brought significant changes to day-to-day working life and the way individuals go about their lives in general. The rise of hybrid working and working from home (WFH), in particular, has brought many challenges for security administrators.

Likewise, the growth of distance learning has increased the risks in educational networks. Schools, universities, and research centers are attractive targets for cybercriminals because they often lack resources from a security perspective. In fact, recent data shows a 93% increase in cyberattacks targeting the education sector in the UK.

We have seen an upsurge in attacks since educational institutions were forced to configure their systems remotely due to the pandemic. With valuable data often stored on student laptops/desktops and institutional servers, the challenges of monitoring personal device access – and backing up that data – has led to complications for departments. computers.

Unfortunately, this is a trend that will only continue, especially with the entry into force of new hybrid work platforms. With cybercriminals looking to take advantage of these vulnerabilities, educational institutions will need to improve their security posture to defend against this larger attack surface in 2022.

Scams to watch out for

One of the biggest threats facing the education sector is Business Email Compromise (BEC) scams.. These attacks involve scamming unsuspecting users for money when a malicious actor sends carefully targeted spear-phishing emails from what appears to be someone they trust. According to research in the United States, from the K-12 Cybersecurity Resource Center and the K12 Security Information Exchange, schools and colleges are more than twice as likely to be affected by a BEC scam as companies outside the education sector.

Likewise, ransomware, as well as BEC attacks, remain a threat to educational institutions. Schools are particularly vulnerable to ransomware due to security vulnerabilities and because attackers can target particularly sensitive times for educational institutions, such as during exams or registration periods.

The NCSC and other security groups continue to issue alerts about the recent wave of ransomware attacks in the industry, which unfortunately echo similar warnings from the past – the cost of ransom is high. The average ransom demanded is over £120,000 ($170,000). According to our research, the real price of ransomware is much higher. This figure does not include damage to operations, reputation, insurance or the cost of defensive measures.

For hackers, schools are valuable because of the data they can provide beyond student grades, including confidential student and staff information, staff and organization bank account details, and other personally identifiable information – making educational institutions the third most common target for hackers behind healthcare and financial services. Personal data is easily exchanged and visible on dark web marketplaces. Therefore, data loss due to theft is a common phenomenon in schools and in many cases it unfortunately goes undetected until it is too late.

The Challenges of Protecting Education from Cybercriminals

Since so much of the learning takes place online, severe attacks can interrupt the learning process for students. In March 2021, many schools in Nottinghamshire district had to shut down their IT infrastructures due to a sophisticated cyberattack.

This further emphasizes that it It is not uncommon for school administrators or teachers to make technology purchases without the consent or even knowledge of the school’s technology department. In these cases, equipment and software are purchased without consideration of potential cybersecurity risks. A single college or school campus can contain many different sub-organizations, such as offices or departments, which can increase a school’s vulnerability to attack.

Attackers frequently target an organization’s networks through remote access systems, such as Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and Virtual Private Networks (VPN). The use of insecure RDP has grown exponentially as more administrators work remotely.

Cybersecurity Tips for Institutions to Stay Secure in the Year Ahead

BEC scams often attack schools and colleges by raping or posing as senior executives. Therefore, it is crucial to train staff to defend against phishing attacks and the compromise of work emails. Any process for releasing funds or sensitive data must have several safeguards in place.

IT administrators and service providers are responsible for providing sound procedures, training, monitoring and compliance. In the most challenging BYOD (bring your own device) environments, the first step should be to monitor and observe work practices before security guidelines are set, including asking questions such as:

  • Which video communication tool to use for distance education?
  • Which file extensions should be allowed?
  • Can files only be sent via email (which probably has file scanning) or a mobile chat app?

It is important to implement a cyber resilience strategy that prescribes multi-layered defenses. This should offer strong layered protection with AV, firewall, email filtering, intrusion detection, and DNS protection, as well as mandating two-factor authentication (2FA) where possible.

One of the most important strategies is to maintain multiple backups of critical institutional data. Cyber ​​criminals cannot be trusted to restore access to data even after ransom payment, so take care of this crucial requirement for recovery. The day a breach occurs is not the time to find out if your disaster recovery plan was well designed. Instead, simulate a worst-case scenario in advance and see if any gaps appear. Closing these gaps as soon as possible is a concrete step that educational institutions can take to protect themselves and their users.

Raising awareness and understanding threat exposure can help address many cybersecurity challenges – investing in security training for everyone is important. Emerging cybersecurity technologies, mitigation tools and strategies can help limit the trend of ransomware and BEC attacks exploding in educational institutions and strengthen cybersecurity throughout the coming year .

  • FOLLOW US ON:

The Hijab line entered West Bengal with a school in Murshidabad district banning female students from wearing the hijab and burqa in class. Following this order, the inhabitants vandalized the school premises. The incident happened on Saturday at Bahutali High School in Suti district of Murshidabad.

Students and residents alleged that school authorities had instructed girls not to wear the hijab inside school premises. This direction sparked controversy and agitated locals reportedly tried to throw stones inside the school and beat up teachers. The police intervened with tear gas and charges of lathi. According to the media, 18 people have been arrested so far.

Later, the police held a meeting with parents and school authorities and the school said it did not prohibit the wearing of hijab inside the premises. The case was settled after negotiations between the school administration and the students’ guardians.

The incident comes amid the ongoing hijab row on high school and college campuses in parts of Karnataka, leading to protests from locals. Higher education institutions are set to reopen on February 14 after being closed for three days in accordance with a government decree.

A PIL was filed in the Supreme Court on Saturday following Karnataka’s ‘hijab’ row and it seeks direction from the Centre, States and Union Territories to implement a common dress code for staff and students of registered educational institutions to ensure equality and promote brotherhood and national integration.

Senate Speaker Ahmad Lawan on Tuesday held a meeting with heads of education sector regulatory agencies to ease simmering tension over an alleged tuition hike in some educational institutions superior.

Attending the meeting were the Executive Secretary of the National University Commission (NUC), Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, the Executive Secretary of the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE), Prof. Paulinus Chijoke Okwelle and Hajia Bilkisu Salihijo Ahmad representing the National Council for Technical Education (NBTE).

The Senate Speaker told his guests that he called the meeting as a follow-up to an earlier engagement he had last week with the Coalition of Northern Groups – Student Wing, which had filed a complaint about a plan by some higher education institutions to raise tuition fees. .

“We felt that we actually had a duty to listen to our students and of course also to hear from you because we have to establish beyond reasonable doubt what the situation is,” Lawan said.

The President of the Senate warned that “whatever the situations we find ourselves in, we must not do anything that could jeopardize the position of our students, especially at such a difficult time.

“We understand that our higher education institutions need more resources, but we also understand that our students are mostly from very poor backgrounds and we need to do everything we can to protect those who are so vulnerable.

“Funding for their education should never stand between them and achieving their dreams. So we need to find out how this situation is and we take appropriate action.

“Because you represent the oversight bodies of our higher education institutions, we felt that we should start with you, listen to you and then we can now find a way out of this.”

He assured the students that the National Assembly and even the government would always work to protect and support them in pursuing their studies.

Responding on behalf of his other colleagues, NUC Executive Secretary Prof. Rasheed commended the Senate Speaker for his timely intervention.

“Your concern is shared by all of us. It will be, at this stage, difficult to know exactly which universities are infringing and which are not. But after this meeting, we will consult all the Universities with a template to fill in and we will say exactly what charges they have.

“We will advertise. If we are misled, we can come to know. We understand that universities cannot be forced to charge uniform fees across the country because they have different demands and come from different situations.

“It is possible that a university in Lagos or Port Harcourt will charge a little more than universities in some rural areas. But there should be a base.

“One university cannot charge N20,000 while the other charges Nigerian students N150,000 where tuition has been free since 1978 at the undergraduate level.

“We are glad that you have now given this alarm in time and I will come back immediately, consult with the Vice-Chancellors and if possible we will bring them to a meeting to discuss the resolution we will arrive at, at the end of this meeting” , said the professor. said Rashid.

According to Nobel Laureate Abhijeet Banerjee, learning losses from school closures are one of the biggest global threats to long-term recovery from COVID-19 and the economic cost will be severe if remedial measures are not taken. are not taken urgently.

Noting that temporary school closures will cause permanent damage, he said simply reopening schools would not be enough and that failing to measure learning losses and take steps to reintegrate children into the system would be a “recipe for a disaster”.



The renowned economist is co-chair of the Global Education Evidence Advisory Group (GEEAP), which is working on recommendations for the education sector in the post-pandemic world. He won the 2019 Nobel Prize in Economics.

“The short- and long-term impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the education, well-being and future productivity of children is profound. Nearly two years after school closures began in most of countries around the world, governments must take urgent action to limit the Estimates suggest that the economic cost of lost learning from the crisis will run into the trillions of US dollars if corrective action is not taken urgently Banerjee told PTI in a phone interview from Massachusetts in the United States.

“While many other sectors rebounded as lockdowns eased, the damage to children’s education is likely to reduce children’s well-being and productivity for decades, causing disruption to education and learning losses due to school closures, one of the biggest threats to mid- to long-term recovery from COVID-19 unless governments act quickly,” he added.

Banerjee, who is currently a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), said schools should reopen at the earliest opportunity.

“Schools need to reopen and stay open as much as possible, but that will not be enough. It is very important to tackle the problem of dropouts to ensure that they return to school and have a plan to reintegrate children in the school system.

“Failing to measure learning loss and acting on the results will be an absolute recipe for disaster. We must recognize that children will definitely fall behind and urgent action must be taken to close the gap and minimize learning loss. income,” he said.

Launched in July 2020, GEEAP is an independent interdisciplinary body composed of leading education experts from around the world. Its mandate is to provide succinct, actionable, and policy-oriented recommendations to support decision-making by policy makers on investments in education in low- and middle-income countries.

“The third factor that countries urgently need to work on is teacher training. Teachers already had a difficult job and with learning losses, children falling behind and varying levels of learning in the classroom, it is harder for teachers to help most students catch up. Providing teachers with simple teaching guides combined with strong tracking and feedback systems can help them structure their teaching approach and ensure that children learn additional tutoring can also help children catch up,” Banerjee said.

“In addition to requiring urgent recovery efforts, the pandemic presents a rare opportunity to rethink and reset education provision so that children of all identities, socio-economic backgrounds and circumstances can learn and thrive,” he added.

Banerjee also warned against closing schools unless there is an aggressive variant of COVID-19 that puts children at extremely high risk.

“Even in the event of new outbreaks, schools should be the last institution to close and the first to reopen, given the relatively low risk of transmission and high cost to young people. If there is an aggressive variant of COVID-19 which puts children at extremely high risk, of course no one wants children to die. But if that’s not the case, I think we should avoid closing schools any further,” he said. .

Schools around the world closed in 2020 following the novel coronavirus outbreak and reopened in various countries depending on the Covid situation. At the height of the crisis, UNESCO data showed that more than 1.6 billion learners in more than 190 countries were out of school. More than 100 million teachers and school staff have been affected by the sudden closures of educational institutions.

Azerbaijani authorities incite religious enmity at state level, accusing us of Islamophobia with an outright lie, says human rights defender Arman Tatoyan.

“How, for example, can they explain the famous decree of the founder of Islam, Muhammad, which he adopted in 626 after the visit of the Armenian Patriarch of Jerusalem Abraham and his 40 delegates, and by this he extended its protection at the Holy Tomb of Christ, churches and monasteries in “Jerusalem, Damascus and Arab regions”, including the Monastery of St. James in Jerusalem, educational institutions and property. It was later preserved,” Tatoyan said in a Facebook post.

According to the Ombudsman, historical facts prove the respect of our people, as well as the respect of the Armenian Church for Islam and other religions.

“With many peoples of the Islamic world, Armenians have lived as friends for centuries,” he said.

He noted that this policy of the Azerbaijani authorities incites hostility towards Armenians living in countries where they profess Islam. This incites enmity between nations.

He recalled that in Artsakh, for example, the upper and inner mosques of Shushi remained standing and were preserved, the upper mosque and the building of the madrasa, a religious school, were completely renovated and a park was laid out. . There is a functioning mosque in Yerevan.

“On the contrary, the Azerbaijani armed forces destroyed and desecrated the Ghazanchetsots and Kanach Zham churches in Shushi, destroyed the Zoravor Surb Astvatsatsin church in Mekhakavan in Artsakh, they desecrated the St. Yeghishe church in Mataghis, destroyed the Armenian khachkars in Shushi, Hadrut. The Armenian Church of Saint Gregory the Illuminator in Baku was desecrated, turned into a library archive, the cross was lowered from the dome, there is no tabernacle, the tombstones that were adjacent to the church were destroyed,” the Human Rights Advocate continued.

Currently, everything is being done at the state level to change the identity of Armenian churches and monasteries, he said, adding that this policy is already manifesting itself in the new forms of torture of Armenian captives in view of their religion.

“Therefore, these Azerbaijani statements are absolutely false, they are politically motivated and are very dangerous for peace.

The 3-day inaugural conference of the 3-month summit concluded with enlightening debates, discussions and deliberations. More … than 10000 people including pedagogues, teachers, parents attended the conference during these 3 days.

Kirti Seth, CEO, IT-ITES Industry Skills Council, NASSCOM, Mr. Rahul Tandon, Design Lead, BBP and Mrs. Roshini Kumar, President, High School Corp.

Here are some of the main outcomes of these discussions:

● India needs to rethink its education system. The model that has served us well until today is outdated and will not help prepare our children for the new future, NEP 2020 should be adopted in daily educational practices.

● We are at the end of the information age and are entering the knowledge age. An educational system based on the accumulation of information will be very inadequate

● Educators and parents are concerned about the changing social, economic and technological landscape and need help and support to navigate the digitally transformed post-pandemic education ecosystem

● We need to make our children multidimensional in their abilities. Acquiring tangible skills, physical and digital, will be key

● The challenges and opportunities of a digitally transformed world are immense. An inclusive, future-ready and technology-enabled education system will be key to meeting these challenges and transforming India into a knowledge-age global superpower.

● Summit organizers contacted examination boards, universities, schools, colleges, board members, principals, teachers, parents and suppliers.

Speaking at the event Smt. Annpurna Devi, Minister of State for Education of India, noted “India has always been a seeker of knowledge. We must draw inspiration from our past while preparing for our future. The education system that has served us so well to date has its limitations and may not be ready to meet the needs of the future. NEP2020 is prepared to keep future needs in mind as it incorporates feedback from different eminent people in the education sector. It is framed by keeping the changing landscape of education and learning and will help take India to greater heights.

Speaking to parents at the event and emphasizing the importance of equipping students with the right skills, Shri Rajeev Chandrashekar, Honorable Minister of State for Skills Development, Entrepreneurship, Power and IT. said: “I encourage all parents to ensure that children learn multidimensional skills to prepare them for the future. Whether it’s traditional skills or carpentry, carpet making, it doesn’t matter. Children need to learn digital skills, not just digital literacy. Parents must now know that the future of India and the future of our children for the next 10 to 20 years will be totally different. Globalization will bring many opportunities and most of them will be digital in nature. It’s going to be very different, very positive and very digital. Every parent should be aware of this and every parent should prepare their children for this.

Speaking at the inaugural event, Smt Renuka Singh, Minister of State for Tribal Affairs, said, “This education summit will have broad participation from the tribal, rural and urban sectors of our nation. Including public and private centers, schools and higher education institutions. Knowledge The Future has emerged at the forefront of the quest to create a more educated, meaningful, purposeful, harmonious, and compassionate society. The summit will include varied sessions focusing on digital transformation and holistic learning as well as NEP2022. »

The inaugural event also included Shri Audimulapu Suresh, Minister of Education, Andhra Pradesh who spoke about the need to develop students with the right resources. He said, “Our students need to be ready for the market. and prepared to face challenges when they leave school in the years to come. Industries are constantly evolving with technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, augmented reality, etc. Consequently, our institutions must no longer be solely specialized. As NEP2020 envisions, institutions should evolve to become multidisciplinary.

Speaking on the new model of education, Sridhar Shrivastava, Director, NCERT, said: “Education, in the future, must be adaptive. It must have three key elements: flexibility, accessibility and personalization. A child must have the flexibility to learn what he wants, to have access to right teachers, content and ecosystem, and the pace of learning and modules should be tailored to their needs and temperament.We focus on building the right digital technologies combined with well-trained teachers to deliver these elements in the new model of education.

The event also had thought leaders including Swami Mitrananda, Chinmaya Mission who spoke about the concept of the event. He said, “The very title of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam inspires us. We, the people of Bharat, were the first to affirm that not only our world, but the entire universe is our family. This was the education that Bharat had – unity or Ek Atma Bhava. This education is very important for us to live harmoniously, and we, the people of Bharat, are the keepers of this knowledge.

Several educators were also present, both as speakers and participants. Speaking at the event Dr A Chhalamayi Reddy, director of the Shri Aurobindo International School, said: “Sri Aurobindo establishes this, and I quote – It is an education proper to the soul, to the action, to the temperament and to the Indian culture that we seek. Not indeed, something faithful simply to the past, but to India’s developing soul, its future needs, the greatness of its coming self-creation and its eternal spirit.

Speaking of the summit format, Shri Shyam Jaju, The President of Summit India said, “The fact that this landmark event had to be held virtually due to Omicron indicates the impact of the pandemic. However, the fact that the summit is virtual helps it reach a much wider audience, which indicates the power of NEP 2020. I thank all our dignitaries, education experts, vice-chancellors, who took the time to participate to this event and made it a great success.”

Shri Mahesh Verma, Secretary – Summit India, further added, “The vision of NEP2020 is attuned to the changes we are seeing in the education sector. The impact will really be felt when we reach the maximum number of people in the minimum time and develop awareness. We hope this 3 month summit will help us achieve this.

Due to popular demand from several educational institutions, educators, teachers, and parents, the inaugural 3-day conference will be webcast between January 27, 28, and 29 and will be open to everyone.. After the three-day conference, weekly roundtables will take place from February 5and until April 9, 2022.

Speaking of blended learning and the role of technology, Ali Sait, President of Summit India South and CEO, Tech Avant-Garde, said, “Communities are just beginning to harness the potential of technology for learning. In a world where knowledge is the number one asset, the benefits of this collaborative, information-rich, technology-enhanced learning environment must be extended even further to enable students, teachers, schools and entire communities to learn without limits. Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam – Education Summit 2022 is one such initiative that will raise awareness about blended learning and NEP 2020 that is helping to reinvent education and make our society – Future Ready.
