How To Make Schools Cybersafe

Before the pandemic, the number one biggest threat to school districts was the compromise of their SIS. Malware, phishing, and ransomware events were rising, and continue to rise, exponentially. In this episode, Rivka Tadjer and Eric Lankford, experts from the K12 Security Information Exchange (K12 SIX) – a new national non-profit dedicated solely to helping to protect public and private K-12 schools from cybersecurity threats – detail those issues and offer strategies to combat them.

You can join in further conversation next week for a free half-day of virtual presentations and panels on the evolving cybersecurity challenges facing the education sector, and the innovative strategies needed to mitigate them.
