Schools that have decided to not take up the new Sophos Anti-virus contract should by now have installed a new Anti-virus product. The current Sophos Licenses expired on the 10th June 2019.

Schools that have not bought the new Sophos contract must remove the Sophos Anti-virus from the school’s desktops, laptops and servers. Schools ICT can arrange a technician to attend, please note there is a cost associated with this. (School technicians can uninstall during normal school visits time permitting). Please get in touch for a quote.

 

End of Support for Windows 7/Server 2008 01/14/2020 207 Days

Microsoft will end its support for the Windows 7 operating system on 14 January 2020.  This means that automatic updates that protect your computer will no longer be available.  Microsoft strongly recommends that you move to Windows 10 before January 2020 to benefit from all the security and updates that are released to a fully supported operating system. 

Dear Colleagues,

We have been advised that some schools have been told that our Schools ICT team are no longer supporting websites for schools in North Yorkshire.

Please be assured that this is not the case and our team continues to both design websites for new and existing customers and provide support with all aspects of website design, hosting and maintenance.

Using a Windows 7 laptop? Please Read

Over the summer Schools ICT was alerted to a serious incident which led to a “Notification of a personal data breach ” reported to the Information Commissioner’s Office.

A laptop was stolen from a teacher’s home during a break-in.

Over the weekend, many schools have been subject to a widespread phishing attempt. Many schools have forwarded on the email to our helpdesk staff to ask for assistance.
