In 2020, The K-12 Security Information Exchange (K12 SIX) and The K-12 Cybersecurity Resource Center reported 408 publicly-disclosed cyber incidents impacting K-12 school districts — an 18% increase compared to 2019.
The cybersecurity and cyber safety landscape in districts is changing. Ransomware and phishing has decreased, while data breaches and incidents of virtual class and meeting invasions have increased. Further, more of the cyber incidents experienced by districts are occurring in cloud applications such as Google Workspace, Microsoft 365 and Zoom, which are used by schools everyday. This is because IT teams are losing visibility and control of student and staff activity.
In this webinar, K12 SIX National Director Doug Levin will discuss the current state of cybersecurity and the findings from his report, The State of K-12 Cybersecurity: 2020 Year in Review.
A panel of K-12 IT leaders will then share their experiences from this past year regarding cybersecurity, safety, and privacy. Panelists will talk to the lessons learned during a turbulent year and discuss what lies ahead for district IT teams at the start of the 2021 school year.
