Meeting the K-12 Cybersecurity Challenge

Block H – October 29, 4:30 PM

Meeting the K-12 Cybersecurity Challenge

The K-12 Cyber Incident Map ( has cataloged over 1,000 school cybersecurity incidents from every state in the nation, including Vermont. Given the increased reliance on technology by schools – accelerated by the need to shift to remote learning – the digital threats facing districts are greater than ever. Ground your experience with cybersecurity issues in your district in the context of national data about the frequency and types of cyber incidents plaguing school districts – with a focus on those that represent the largest challenges to district IT teams. Hear ideas about how school districts can respond, including about an emerging non-profit community designed specifically to help school districts to better mitigate and respond to the cyber threats they are facing.
