ROE 8 Cybersecurity Workshop for District Leaders

Mon. November 4, 2024 | 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm CST

Join the Learning Technology Center for an engaging and critical workshop where your district’s leadership team, including superintendents and technology directors, will participate in a Cybersecurity Tabletop Exercise. This session simulates a real-world cyber attack in a controlled, scenario-based environment to test and enhance your district’s response strategies.

This proactive approach is akin to a fire drill for cyber attacks, aiming to prepare your team for actual incidents by ensuring that all systems and protocols perform optimally under stress. Though it’ll feel like a game, this exercise will equip your leadership team with the knowledge and skills needed to safeguard your organization against future cyber threats.

Workshop Objectives:

Engage in Role-Playing Scenarios: Participants will navigate through the process of managing a cybersecurity incident as it unfolds, making real-time decisions based on their roles and responsibilities.

Assess Response Plans: This exercise will test your current cybersecurity measures and protocols to identify strengths and uncover potential weaknesses in your response plan.

Receive Expert Feedback: IT professionals will monitor the exercise, providing insights and feedback on the effectiveness of your actions and decision-making processes.

Improve Preparedness: Utilize the outcomes of this exercise to refine your strategies, close any gaps in your processes, and strengthen your overall cybersecurity posture.
