  • — Leveraging Cradlepoint for the Connected Learning Environment —

    The education sector is always looking at new technologies to enhance student learning, increase efficiency, drive down costs, improve safety, and expand services. For K-12 school districts, reliable network connectivity is more important than ever before.

    Districts have discovered that 4G LTE networking solutions provide the reliability, affordability, scalability, and security necessary to fit their student-centered goals. From on-campus primary connect and in-vehicle solutions to business continuity and digital signage, schools and students are reaping widespread benefits from the flexibility and constant uptime that 4G LTE provides.

    Attendees Will Learn:

    • About K-12 IT trends such as off-campus learning, video surveillance, and handling the explosion of mobile devices
    • Network security and CIPA compliance for K-12 campuses
    • How mobile WiFi solutions for buses and off-campus learning create efficiencies
    • About E-rate eligible bundles for Cradlepoint solutions
  • These days, every aspect of educational development creates digital data. Students, faculty, and staff are continually creating files for assignments, lectures and lesson plans, lab and field research, plus the administrative “paper trail”, challenging you, the IT manager, to secure, protect, and manage the growing data sprawl. Schools are just as susceptible to security breaches as other organizations and must comply with stringent data privacy regulations, all while supporting a diverse and constantly changing user base.

    These days, IT managers are challenged with the task of successfully securing, protecting and managing the growing data sprawl across all industries. In this webinar, hear a unique perspective on how digital data affects the educational sector and how it measures against other verticals.

    Join guest Mark Lamson, Director of IT at the Westerly, RI public school system, and David Stevens, Technical Marketing Manager at DataGravity, as they explore ways that local school districts, colleges and universities can use automated file and data analysis to reduce complexity and better serve their constituents. You’ll learn strategies to:

    •Enhance data compliance and security
    •Increase visibility and understanding of your data sets
    •Rein in data growth and storage utilization
  • Continuity responsibility and planning should not be a separate and compartmentalized function performed by independent cells of a few planners in each organization. Organizations must fully integrate continuity into all aspects of an organization’s daily operations, thus creating a “culture of continuity.”

    The COOP presentation will provide an understanding of Continuity and Continuity of Operations, explain the importance of a viable Continuity capability, and emphasize the need for a viable Continuity capability in all organizations.

    In addition to providing an overview of Continuity of Operations, the COOP presentation will also:

    - Educate Federal, State, territorial, tribal, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations, and emergency management practitioners on the importance of integrating Continuity into daily operations, functions, plans, and mission areas.
    - Emphasize the Federal Government’s Policy requiring Federal agencies to be prepared for unpredictable threats such as earthquakes, accidents, sabotage, and terrorism.
    - Discuss the importance for State, territorial, tribal, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations to be prepared for unpredictable disruption of business operations.
    - Provide States, territories, tribes, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations, and businesses with assistance, guidance, knowledge, networking, resources, and tools needed to succeed.
