About this talk

When it comes to network security, school districts and universities schools already have unique challenges, starting with small IT teams and strict budgets. However, the unforeseen challenges that 2020 and the pandemic brought have further complicated cybersecurity for education. As more districts and universities re-open for in-person classes again, after an unprecedented year of remote learning and record cyber attacks, IT teams must now prepare for not only in-person learning, but also for the devices and technology that were used during remote learning to be brought onto the network. This poses a challenge to IT departments as these devices and apps could unknowingly contain malware and or provide an entry point to hackers. Join Heather Paunet, VP of Product and Marketing, for “Addressing Record Breaking Cyber Attacks in Education” to discuss the unique challenges IT teams at educational institutions face.
