Cyber Safety & Security in K-12 Schools – David Waugh – ESW #172
As K-12 schools and students move into a digital world, the traditionally separate areas of campus safety and cybersecurity are converging. Cyberbullying, the increase in violence on campus, hackers targeting school information systems and student data, and the technological overlap between campus safety and cybersecurity are all driving this trend. The segment will look at how schools are taking a layered approach to protecting Google G Suite and Microsoft Office 365 data from risks focused on the K-12 education environment.
