You’re doing everything you can to improve cybersecurity in your schools, but how do you know if it’s enough?
Join ClassLink leaders and cybersecurity experts at the ClassLink CyberSession, where they’ll introduce you to the Cybersecurity Rubric (CR). The CR is a free tool school leaders can use to self-assess their cybersecurity practices and make significant improvements.
Along with an introduction to the CR, you’ll learn how the White House’s Secure by Design pledge will reduce the security burden on schools. Plus, uncover strategies for using new ClassLink features to make your schools more cyber-secure.
Made for busy leaders, this session is short and filled with actionable insights. Register now to find your path to stronger cybersecurity.
