Schools

Have you thought about what you would do if your school is flooded? Your computer systems are hacked? If an emergency happens whilst you’re out on a school trip? Is your school's resilience plan up to date, and has it been tested? 

You can find a lot of great advice, guidance and checklists from the government for educational establishments (incl. emergency planning, business continuity, security, bomb threat, lockdowns, etc).
