April 17 cybersecurity webinar to focus on creating a cybersecurity framework

KSDE’s Information Technology (IT) team has assembled a team of experts to help school technology directors and staff members, along with superintendents, principals and others who are interested, navigate the complex and critical practices of cybersecurity and data privacy.

The 60-minute webinars will take place at 1 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month in March, April, May and June.

Advance registration is required for each event. Registrants will receive a confirmation email containing information for joining the webinar.

Doug Levin, co-founder and national director of K12 SIX, will lead the April 17 session, “Creating a Cybersecurity Framework 2,” which builds upon March’s session. This is the fourth workshop in the KSDE Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Professional Development Webinar Series. Developed by K-12 IT practitioners for K-12 IT practitioners, and aligned to cybersecurity risk management best practices, the K12 Security Information eXchange (K12 SIX) Essentials series establishes baseline cybersecurity standards for school districts in the U.S. It also provides guidance and tools to support their implementation.
