Independent schools reported a 90% increase in negative impacts as a result of cybersecurity incidents between 2017 and 2018. While the IT department can be an important ally, this work must be managed by senior leadership and should be part of a broader risk management strategy. Hear about challenges independent schools have experienced and learn to develop a strategy and road map to address these risks. Also, October is National Cyber Awareness Month. Our presenters will be sharing resources that are only available during Cyber Awareness month. Be sure to attend or listen to the recording early enough to take advantage of these!
