CSI’s 8th Annual Cybersecurity Event – Last Days To Register!

Cyber risk is growing every day. In 2022 K-12 education was the single most targeted industry for ransomware. CSI wants to get you the information you need to know. Spend a day learning about the cybersecurity threats and data privacy challenges facing schools today and how they could impact your district. With breakfast and lunch provided, it's also a great way to network with your peers and compare notes on how they are protecting their districts.

Speakers include:

  • Morgan Wright, is an internationally recognized expert on cybersecurity strategy, and cyberterrorism. He has been featured on Fox News, CNN, and PBS. Morgan will be discussing the Coming Cyberspace Cold War with Russia, There’s a very good reason Russia has not deployed its latest cyber weapons against Ukraine. They’re saving them for the United States in what may be the beginning of a modern cold war played out in cyberspace. NATO has declared cyber to be an operational domain and subject to Article 5 in case of a “massive” cyber attack. But what does “massive” mean? Russia will play the fringes in the gray space of policy to conduct low-intensity warfare, using its tools and tactics refined against adversaries like Ukraine. The result? Unrestricted warfare against our critical infrastructure, espionage operations targeting the software supply chain, and new cyberweapons.
  • Louise DeCandia and Marlowe Cochran from the New York State Education Department will provide updates on Data Privacy and discuss the Student Data Privacy Consortium
  • Scott Dion, Cisco, will provide an overview of the enhancement of DNS Layer Security through the effective use of Cisco Umbrella. Participants will understand how this advanced system can bolster the security of various endpoint platforms within their Districts.
  • Michael Compisi and Alan Winchester, Caetra.io will discuss Governance and Incident Response: A Solid Marriage. A discussion on how organizational oversight/governance drives proper business continuity and incident response planning. Information will be shared on what parts of the NIST CSF align with IR/BC modeling that the IT group will utilize. There will also be a discussion of how governance shapes the policy to define and model the incident response plan (Risk Management) and more.
