How the MS-ISAC Can Help K-12’s Strengthen Cyber Posture and Resilience
2:00 pm - 2:50 pm
Cybersecurity challenges face all types of organizations. The threats we see impacting the private sector are similar to the threats that the MS-ISAC has seen impacting the Education sector. These threat actors are not only after money, personal information and organization secrets, but they are also looking to damage your organization’s reputation. While no single organization can prevent these threat actors from targeting and infiltrating your network, the resources provided at no-cost by the MS-ISAC can help mitigate these risks. Resources ranging from actionable intelligence and passive monitoring of your public information, to actively blocking malicious connections from establishing, the MS-ISAC provides no-cost resources to over 14,000 organizations across the United States. During this presentation we will discuss the current threats impacting the K-12 Schools & Public Higher Education and discuss some of the services the MS-ISAC has to offer at no cost.
