K-12 Cybersecurity & Safety Leadership Series

Cybersecurity & Safety Resolutions for 2021 & Beyond

Duration: 1 hour
Where: Your desk!

Since the start of the 2020-21 school year, school districts have faced an influx of cybersecurity and student safety incidents resulting from the remote learning shift. Recent data from The K-12 Cybersecurity Resource Center shows that districts have experienced more than 160 publicly-disclosed incidents since August, which has negatively impacted districts nationwide. A majority of these incidents originate from the new applications used to support remote learning.

These cybersecurity and student safety risks that school districts face didn't come out of nowhere—they've been there all along. However, remote learning is making them more apparent. While classrooms in school districts have quickly shifted to the cloud, K-12 IT security hasn't been so fast to shift their strategies to keep students, teachers, and staff protected in these environments.

The New Year is just around the corner. Join us as we talk with a panel of K-12 IT leaders to learn more about the risks they have experienced this school year, how their security strategies have (or haven't) shifted since making the move to remote learning, and the resolutions they are making for 2021 and beyond.

During this expert panel discussion, we will discuss:

  • The changing K-12 cybersecurity and safety landscape in schools, and how remote learning has made an impact
  • The increase of SaaS/cloud applications in K-12 schools and what IT teams need to consider when moving to the cloud
  • The biggest cybersecurity, safety, and data privacy risks that K-12 IT teams must be monitoring for in remote learning
  • The New Year's resolutions K-12 IT teams must make in 2021 to improve their cybersecurity, safety, and data privacy strategies moving forward
