EdTech Before the Bell: Acing Cybersecurity with Limited Resources
With a massively expanded attack surface due to remote learning in the face of COVID19 and a vast amount of valuable personally identifiable information (PII), targeted attacks on educational districts and institutions have skyrocketed with 166 incidents in 2021. As school boards look to underfunded security programs to protect this information and preserve the student’s ability to learn, security resources are stretched thin and struggle to remain resilient.
With limited influence on the security budget, schools must focus their efforts and resources where they’ll make the largest impact and find solutions for the worldwide cybersecurity talent shortage. Join CriticalStart CTO, Randy Watkins, to discuss:
- Current cybersecurity trends in education
- Foundational, Impactful, and Necessary controls to prevent elementary attacks
- Solutions to combat the cybersecurity headcount shortage
