              Cyber Security in K-12 Schools Information Security Services for Education

              Technology is critical to the classroom

              Digital learning programs such as blended learning, online portals, and BYOD are just a few examples of the role technology plays in schools. While technology has a positive impact and is transforming how students learn, your networks, servers and websites are storing more critical information than ever. And it’s not just the personally identifiable information (PII) residing your network, but also the PII recorded on physical documents.

              Schools host a wide range of high-value digital information on their networks, such as student PII, bus routes, after school programs, and payment card information for example. Schools can also be a tunnel to hackers' intended target such as government agencies, services contractors and vendors. Threat actors know school IT departments typically lack the resources, budget, time and expertise to defend their networks from cyberattacks and data breaches.

              Cyberattacks Against Schools Can Result in:

              • Breaches and infections
              • Non-compliance fees and penalties
              • Disruption of the learning experience and school operations
              • Loss of community trust
              • Lost time and expense
              • Legal liability
              • Financial consequences
