Ensuring Compliance and Security for K-12: Addressing concerns facing our schools

03/04/2021 1:00 pm

Schools are now required to be compliant with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), to filter web traffic, provide protection from cyberthreats and inappropriate content, as well as gain the appropriate visibility and controls necessary to meet CIPA, Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) compliance standards. How can you provide a consistent user experience for your students, teachers, and administrators who work on campus, from a remote location, or at home while still keeping them and their data safe?

The challenges for schools will only get more complicated with time, especially as remote, distance learning becomes the norm. With 1-to-1 device initiatives, virtual classrooms, bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies expanding, and technology we can’t even envision yet, the trend will shift toward treating every device as if it’s not trusted. Yet students have to work as if they’re in a classroom environment and do it securely and effectively. Schools will need a way to quickly and securely scale, providing access to applications their staff and students need, without escalating cost.
Join us as we discuss how K-12 organizations can provide a secure and seamless transition for their Home Internet Access for Students that includes remote learning, as well as ensuring compliance through simple Internet safety, privacy and security policy implementation. As the Internet is utilized more and more, deeper protection is required to keep students, teachers, principals, and administrators safe without compromising the educational processes.
This presentation will:
• Address critical needs to K-12 Internet Security & Protection
• Discuss compliance requirements & standards
• Cover cost effective measures to assist K-12 Organizations

Most districts are not prepared to manage the increasing number of continuous 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.

Eliminating the Blindspots: Device and Network Visibility in the Age of BYOD

05/08/2019 12:00 pm

BYOD trends are growing exponentially, adding complexity and risk to the tasks of network — and student — protection. More than 100 K-12 school districts across the U.S. were subjected to internal and external cyber attacks in 2018 alone. These network security challenges force districts and schools to exhaust resources on digital crime scene cleanup and incident response. Blind spots such as partial asset lists and little-to-no visibility of what’s on a network create risks to school and community safety. Join this webinar to learn how to improve your security posture, comply with Title I inventory requirements and maximize ROI on your IT resources.
