Cyber Security

Technology leaders and policymakers need to protect their networks and information security, analyze their current status, and validate what they are doing well. CoSN provides tools and resources that provide insight into how risk can be further reduced in ways that help technology leaders contribute to their schools' primary goals of teaching and learning. We also offer assistance to district technology leaders who are working to ensure safety for both students and staff.

Be sure to download our cybersecurity planning rubric to assess your readiness and use our planning template as you build your own network.

CoSN is grateful for the following sponsors for their support of this initiative: HP, Juniper Networks, Lenovo, and Microsoft

CoSN does additional cybersecurity work through the K-12 Federated Identity and Access Management Task Force.
