Workshops and Breakout Sessions
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS for January 14 and January 17
Creating a Cybersecurity Plan from the Ground Up
All school districts — large and small, urban and rural — need a cybersecurity plan. Participants will take a deep dive into the elements of cybersecurity plan, gaining exposure to three leading frameworks: Nationwide Cybersecurity Review (NCSR), the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF), and the Center for Internet Security (CIS) Top 20. An emphasis will be placed on strategies that prevent 90% of vulnerabilities. During the workshop, attendees will complete the NCSR and NIST assessments and then align the results to the CIS Top 20 in order to identify areas of growth. Collaboration and networking with other administrative and technology leaders will play an integral role in the day’s activities.
Presenters: Ben Bayle, Ben Yochem, Marco Robles, Dekalb 428
Development of a Data Privacy Plan
Superintendents, Building Administrators, and Technology Leaders play a critical role in the district’s Data Privacy Plan. With recent passage of Public Act 101-0516 in August, which becomes effective on July 1, 2021, districts are required to have a Data Privacy Plan. This workshop will provide strategies, tools, and resources to develop your district’s plan. Collaboration and networking with other administrative and technology leaders will play an integral role in the day’s activities.
