8 steps for early detection of a predator, hacker or student who has broken into your school network
Thursday, October 18, 4:00–5:00 p.m.

Sean O’Brien, CEO and Founder of @RISK Technologies (a TCSA Solution Provider) will help you focus on the dangers facing your school’s computer network. This hour-long webinar will cover the following:

Partnering for campus and network security
Security is a fundamental requirement for organizations today.  Breaches to schools’ networks happen every day.  Whether students bypass security controls and visit prohibited sites or teachers click on suspicious emails and unsuspectingly launch malware—it’s weakening the perimeter of your school for hackers and predators to get inside.

How threats get into your network
Compelling research shows that 28% of phishing attacks are targeted at education.  In 2017 phishing attacks were responsible for 73% of malware being delivered to organizations. Phishing enables attackers to gain access to school’s applications, data (including student records) and lock up your system.  Is your school being targeted?

Are we too small for a hack?
No – hackers and predators know that mid-size and small organizations lack sufficient staff and security controls that enterprise level companies have.  Hackers use these easy targets as gateways to larger companies – your vendors and suppliers.    

Security – everyone’s duty
From the janitor to the superintendent, everyone carries a device—whether it’s a smartphone, a tablet or a laptop—each device represents a potential door leading a hacker or predator into the school’s network and into the hands of kids.  The network is the new attack surface.

Join Sean for an eye-opening important conversation about securing your campus from the inside out!
