Leading and Understanding School Technology Networks: Securing Learning and Leading in the 21st Century 

 

Session 1: Cybersecurity and what you should know 

In this session, you will learn about what the attackers are doing to try and compromise your network and data.  See some of the techniques they deploy in real world examples and demos.  Learn steps you can take to improve your security posture as you work towards building a zero-trust infrastructure.

 

Session 2: Technology in K-12

In this session, we will discuss the rapidly changing needs of today’s digital learners.  Students are demanding fast connectivity and broad access to information with few restrictions.  Administrators are concerned about privacy, acceptable use, and costs. During this technical session, you will discuss various best practices for implementing technology into a 21st century learning environment. 

 

Session 3: Cloudy with a Chance of Success  

In this final session of the day, the conversation will focus on cloud computing. There are many options for migrating your infrastructure, applications and data to the cloud.  Learn what is required to safely make the move to “The Cloud”.
