Continually Reduce Your Risk To Cyber Threats
New low-cost packages available, as part of the Jisc Frameworks, that not only identify risks to phishing attacks and vulnerable systems, but provide continual awareness and threat prevention.
Threats On The Continual Rise
Since February, lockdown has attracted a new wave of cyber criminals seeking weaknesses across all organisations. The most common cyber threats that our HE and FE sector customers are experiencing are those related to:
- Huge rise in sophisticated phishing attacks compromising users and devices.
- Vulnerable ‘unpatched’ systems still constantly being exploited.
- Cyber security postures being neglected due to other priorities and how we now work.
- Home working creating both relaxed awareness and appreciation for cyber security
Working with our customers in helping them address these threats and the challenges, we have launched new cost-effective cyber security packages as part of Jisc’s cyber security frameworks for the education sector.
Simple Steps To Protect Your Institution
The packages, designed for the education sector, address these key cyber security concerns by identifying:
- The organisations overall risk to phishing attacks due to lack of user awareness: opens, clicks and compromises
- Poorly or misconfigured infrastructures: user devices, email configurations, infrastructure and perimeter security
- Vulnerabilities across infrastructures and servers, and how to fix them.
- User awareness training needs – both short and long term.
We provide a consultative approach, with detailed prevention reports, that help institutions understand what the risks mean to them and how they can minimise their exposure to attacks.

Gerrard Shaw, Network Support Officer
"We decided to work with KHIPU Networks via the Jisc framework, as their simulated phishing and awareness offering was exactly what we needed and within our budget. We strongly recommend FE institutions explore the Jisc framework for this service, as we feel social awareness is vital for the on-going prevention of attacks”
Dave Neild, Cyber Security Architect
University of Leeds
“The strongest and weakest layer of defence against phishing attacks are your users. It’s vital to understand your organisations risk to these cyber-attacks and be able to provide the necessary awareness training and tools to limit your exposure. Using the Jisc framework for simulated phishing and awareness training, provided by KHIPU Networks, we have been able to test our security posture and identify key areas to help protect the University from future attacks.”
Mark Tysom, Cyber Security Product Manager
“We work hard to ensure that our members have access to high quality, cost-effective solution providers. We have worked with KHIPU for some years and this is the second time it has earned our ‘top-ranked supplier’ accolade.”
Steve Kennett, Director of Security
“New security vulnerabilities are being discovered and exploited by cybercriminals daily. For education organisations with large and diverse IT networks, it can be hard enough to simply understand their exposure to known vulnerabilities, let alone try to coordinate patching and testing against them. The Vulnerability Assessment Service is designed to relive this pressure, and prevent outbreaks like WannaCry before they happen.”
Mark McKay, Head of ICT
Guildford College Group (Activate Learning)
“Using the simulated phishing services, provided by KHIPU Networks, gave us the ability to be one step ahead of attacks and offer an education on good practices to our users which they can use anywhere in life”
Rob Spalding, Head of Infrastructure
Anglia Ruskin University
“Using Jisc’s vulnerability assessment service enables the University to have a pro-active approach to cyber security. By having an automated solution that not only identifies vulnerabilities before they can be exploited, it reports on which systems will be affected and what actions need to be undertaken to protect them. This automated approach is vital in the defense against cyber-attacks including the recent ransomware which made headline news. The service, provided by KHIPU Networks via the Jisc VAS framework, has been an immediate success for the University, with a quick return on investment.”
Chris Adcock, Chief Finance Officer
Duchy of Lancaster
“KHIPU are competent cyber security trainers, who kept the audience attentive and interested. The content was pitched at a relevant level and had more than enough ‘food for thought’. The feedback that I had from the attendees was very positive and all felt the course worthwhile. As an employer, I also feel that this education will really help reduce the risk of an employee inadvertently compromising our network and they can no longer say that no-one told us. Very highly recommended.”
Lisa Quinn, Training & User Comms Manager
Trinity College Dublin
Trinity College Dublin, like most institutions, regularly experience phishing attacks via email therefore we have to find ways to protect our users and the University from being compromised. KHIPU, as an already trusted supplier, was selected to provide us with phishing awareness campaigns that included simulated phishing and follow up online education for our staff community. So far, we have found this approach has helped us highlight the dangers of Phishing which, in turn, enables us to educate our users and help protect against phishing attacks.”
Boeta Pretorius, Chief Director of IT
“Our organisation like many others, is constantly dealing with cyber threats and attacks. When you have such a large number and diverse range of users, it's likely that an attack such as phishing will be successful, causing major problems such as crippled networks, confidential data leakage and damage to reputation. Whilst you have to invest into the right technologies and solutions to protect against these attacks, it's not always possible due to budget constraints. Even with heavy solution investments, its still the users who are the last point of defence against any attack.”
