Workshop – Cyberthreat Protection as a Service
Tuesday, October 22nd | 1:30 – 2:30 PM
Mercadien Technologies Vice President of Sales & Marketing Chris Mangano will be presenting a workshop on Why Schools are moving to Cyberthreat Protection as a Service. Cyberthreats are stealthy and complex; defending against them requires personnel with specialized training, using advanced tools capable of identifying and isolating issues before they can compromise your school’s operational infrastructure. Learn why schools and organizations of all types are partnering with managed-security providers to gain sophisticated constant cybersecurity monitoring beyond what internal school IT staff can provide.
Learning Lab – FERPA Makes Cyberthreat Assessments Mandatory: Are You Prepared?
Wednesday, October 23rd | 10 – 10:30 AM
Understanding your school’s risk of a cyberattack involves everyone – not just the information technology department. It’s a collective school leadership initiative involving human resources, finance, facilities, operations as well as information technology. Learn about “attack surfaces” and why FERPA makes cyber risk assessments a requirement for schools across the country.
