Getting Started with Cybersecurity

CoSN’s EdTech Leadership Survey consistently identifies cybersecurity as a top priority for school system IT Leaders.   

School system leaders, including technology leaders, 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.

Preparation is key to preventing attacks and protecting your organizational systems.

Implementation of your cybersecurity program requires a systematic approach. These resources can streamline the process.

Preparedness is what separates a botched response from a secure one.
