Is Your District an Easy Target for a Cyberattack?

Thursday Sept. 17 at 11 a.m. Most districts are not prepared to manage the increasing number of  malware, ransomware, and phishing attacks being encountered as a result of the move to virtual learning. During this webinar, K-12 districts will learn how to use Cortex XDR Pro to automate the alerting process. Most districts use tools that generate lots of noise and offer no in-depth information into what is happening on their networks This session will allow districts to see how fast they can take back control of their network, all of the time.
