Join NYSCATE Corporate Council member Bluum for this highly topical session on building a responsive organizational culture to safely deal with cybersecurity.

Digitally responsive educational organizations are poised to respond to the pedagogical, technological, and organizational needs of the learning community. Cybersecurity is an essential component of this response. Appropriate cybersecurity policies, procedures, and practices help ensure teachers, staff and students have the access and resources they need while maintaining the privacy and security of data and networks. They also help demonstrate that cybersecurity is not just an IT problem, but rather that shared ownership and accountability need to be established for all stakeholders.

Organizations that follow these three steps are better protected against potential threats and more prepared to take action:

  1. PLAN processes and practices

  2. PINPOINT vulnerabilities

  3. BUILD path to improve cybersecurity posture
