The digital evolution of K-12 education, underway for some time, continues to surge as schools and districts move forward in their quest to deploy 1:1, bridge the homework gap, and empower teachers with more data to unlock student success. Behind their accomplishments, each new technology deployment brings the potential for increased risk of cyberattacks. And another oft-overlooked need simmers - a gap in foundational cybersecurity training within STEM, Maker, and other curricula.
In the first of this 3-part series, we will set the base for a holistic approach to turn these challenges into opportunity and success.
- How can boards and administrators move to reduce risk and create assurance that district and state regulatory needs are met, and do so in a financially advantageous way?
- How can CIO/CISOs and security teams prevent successful attacks and still have time to do everything else on their plate?
- And what resources are available to Principals and faculty to teach effective cybersecurity habits to students, to enhance their education and protect the school?
