There was a time when the greatest fear of an education system’s technology director was a computer virus that disrupted the use of a lab or two. Today, however, K-12 school systems are complex ecosystems that use technology in nearly every aspect, from instruction to business practices.
That’s even truer today as the COVID pandemic has accelerated the use of remote and distant learning technologies that have exponentially increased the digital attack surface for education systems. School divisions with their data-rich environments are now in the crosshairs of malicious actors who exploit their vulnerabilities for monetary gain. It’s clearer than ever that K-12 programs need a more robust cybersecurity strategy.
Watch this on-demand webinar, where an expert panel of leading school district CIOs, CTOs, and industry experts from around the country will discuss the current state of cybersecurity at the K-12 levels.
Topics at this panel discussion will include:
- What methods have been used to maintain good cyber hygiene and hold bad actors at bay
- A review of federal legislation and actions being conducted by the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)
- Predictions from the field and by our experts about what 2022 will bring
