The increased reliance on online schooling modalities calls for provision of sufficient security in education management information systems (EMIS).

Addressing cybersecurity-related issues is imperative for continuity of education service delivery and resilience of education systems. In case of any cybersecurity threat materializing, an EMIS must recover and be functional within an acceptable period and level of data loss. This tool kit provides guidance for decision-makers and practitioners on how to formulate strategies and implement cybersecurity measures in an EMIS, what cybersecurity issues to guard against, and potential solutions.
