Why? The education world is constantly changing and growing, and technology is consistently a factor in that change. In our new technology-forward education industry, cybersecurity is a major factor in protecting students, educators, and communities. While a robust technical solution is a critical component to shielding people and systems from digital threats, K-12 leaders must also work together to co-create and implement a systems-based cybersecurity strategy.
What is The Cybersecurity Leadership Game? This game is a valuable group cybersecurity professional development tool. The game allows everyone to gather and participate in a cybersecurity leadership exchange. Every question and discussion card are designed to trigger open, honest feedback.
