SECURITY AWARENESS WORKSHOP

Cybersecurity is much more than an IT issue, representing one of the greatest threats to every organization. “95% of data breaches are caused by human error.” (IBM Cyber Security Index) Technology alone can only solve ~26% of potential data security threats. One of the most effective ways to protect your staff and your students is through awareness and preparation. Schools often feel ill-equipped to address these issues on their own. This workshop is designed to assist school districts with the development of an effective security awareness plan.
