Professionally: students gaining access to network —— personally: financial/password/and cyber attacks
NYSCATE is the state chapter of CoSN in NY. http://www.nyscate.org/membership#institutions
Hi! Here from LI. Looking to get a better understanding of cybersecurity in schools.
10K employees.... in K12 some of you deal with higher number students plus employees plus substitutes that are on a daily basis. Many K12 have larger networks then many larger companies due to the distribution of building and endpoint devices
Hi! I'm Sean, a recovering CTO. :)
Career Literacy Teacher at Duchess BOCES, co teaching Criminal Justice.
Hi, I’m the Manager of the LHRIC’s Data Privacy and Security Service and Coordinator of the RIC One Data Privacy and Security Service (a statewide initiative)
@Allison just like you mentioned- making sure students are aware....
from Elmira City School District... tech TA in charge of 1:1 devices
Not IF but WHEN?? I wonder- is that the mindset in some of the schools you work in?
Data Governance - EduTech - Wayne Finger Lakes BOCES
At the LHRIC we have done table top exercises with interested districts
No. The IT dept. is more self contained in our school.
people do know who to call if they suspicious of something
Two big holes: Patches and people...
If they can get you, they can get us! : )
FYI... CoSN created a Cybersecurity Cost Report last year with guiding points related to security and how to leverage Erate funding to provide support to districts. https://bit.ly/3gzFClf
NYSCATE is working with CoSN on this year's coming report.
@Sean- that is great. Can district/BOCES people be involved with that? If so- how do they do that?
@Jeremiah, we encourage districts and BOCES to join CoSN and NYSCATE and from there you can join into working groups that CoSN members are developing on, including cybersecurity, this year.
We are also working with CoSN's Advocacy and Policy committee to work with FCC and Congress to see that cybersecurity applications, programs and services can be eligible for Erate funding this year and included in further federal funding like Title IV Part A
With the move to remote learning teachers and districts are not focusing on protecting student data and are using “free” software.
Training is huge! Teachers need to understand the importance of protecting data and become advocates for it.
Is there an app/game that teaches cyber risk that we could use with our students and faculty?
The US Dept of Education also has a great resource on cybersecurity in their Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools (REMS) on cybersecurity. https://rems.ed.gov/docs/Cybersecurity_K-12_Fact_Sheet_508C.PDF
The point you made in the beginning is very helpful. When speaking about phishing and security issues it helps to relate ti to their personal life.

One of my more successful "password" campaigns was designed around how to protect your social media accounts (Twitter, FB, Insta, etc.)
It’s like in the days when bringing in CDs were blocked
We may be using Zoom quite a bit. Is there anything you can mention about avoiding “Cyber bombs”, and other Zoom vulnerabilities?
Marc, how are you funding these added initiatives and have you added cyber insurance in your district?
Zoom has implemented a number of security updates, so that is good. I urge people to use password protected rooms, and leverage the waiting room feature as well.
@Chris I believe Zoom is going to require passwords and/or waiting rooms by end of Sept for everyone.
The recording of this webinar will be available on the NYSCATE website within 24 hours. You can view this, and all our other recorded webinars, at http://www.nyscate.org/learning-services/webinar-archives
Be aware of your Cyber Insurance company. Contact them immediately as the policy may have certain requirements that must be followed or your claim might be invalidated.
Never waste a good crisis :-)
Thank you all!
