CYBERSECURITY TIP: Did you know that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security offers free cybersecurity services for schools?

The National Cybersecurity Assessments and Technical Services (NCATS) team is a division of the Department of Homeland Security’s National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC). NCATS has three primary service offerings that are available to schools and districts at no cost: Cyber Hygiene, Phishing Campaign Assessment, and Risk & Vulnerability Assessment.


Cyber Hygiene (CyHy) is a scanning service intended to help organizations follow best practices and eliminate known vulnerabilities from your Internet-facing systems. A report of the findings is delivered weekly. Once initiated, this service is mostly automated and requires little direct interaction between NCATS and the school or district.


Phishing Campaign Assessment (PCA) measures your team’s propensity to click on email phishing lures, commonly used as a means to breach an organization’s network. PCA results can be used to provide guidance for anti-phishing training and awareness.


A Risk & Vulnerability Assessment (RVA) is a dedicated, customizable two-week engagement that allows schools and districts to select from a menu of network security services including penetration testing, network mapping and vulnerability scanning, phishing, and/or web application and database security assessments.
