The cybersecurity threat to K-12 schools and districts is at an unprecedented level. The increased technology dependency in our schools has emboldened bad actors determined to wreak havoc on district infrastructure and data systems. This edWeb podcast is the launch event for a new national campaign to drive greater awareness across all levels of K-12 district leadership on the realities of K-12 cybersecurity.
In this edWeb podcast, Project Tomorrow’s CEO, Dr. Julie A. Evans, shares new Speak Up research findings from 600 district leaders nationwide about their concern levels regarding cyberattacks and the steps they are taking to reduce vulnerabilities. A key finding is the significant disconnect between district administrators and technology leaders on the state of cyber threats to their districts. The panel discussion features the experiential insights and cold hard advice of two technology leaders with frontline experience safeguarding their districts.
Listeners gain access to a new national report on the state of K-12 cybersecurity from Project Tomorrow (a collaboration with iboss) and a ready-to-use checklist of immediate steps that should be taken by every K-12 district leader to reduce cyber risks today. This special event is highly recommended for superintendents, school board members and district technology leaders.
