Cybersecurity continues to be the number-one technology concern among school leaders. School districts are prime targets for cyberattacks on their networks and data. Given the dire impact of cyberattacks on school systems, it is incumbent upon school leaders to understand why school system leaders must make cybersecurity a priority and develop effective plans for preventing those attacks on their systems. Equally important for school leaders is knowing how to immediately respond if their district is the victim of a cyberattack.

In this edWeb podcast, three superintendents engage in an interactive conversation as they share why cybersecurity is a leadership priority across their school districts. An overview of their recommended policies, practices, and procedures are discussed. Strategies for communicating the importance of cybersecurity both internally and externally are also reviewed. Access to multiple free CoSN cybersecurity resources are shared, including the recently released CoSN NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Cybersecurity Framework Resource Alignment for K-12 tool.

This edWed podcast is of particular value to superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring school leaders.
