CSI Webinar – Come learn how to provide world-class protection for your district against cyberattacks in a sane, manageable way.

New York State K-12 school districts must follow EdLaw 2-d. We all know that is easier said than done. It is hard work with limited staff and limited resources to properly protect student and staff personally identifiable data while protecting the integrity of the district's network and making sure there are proper controls to protect other confidential data and financial systems.

The bad guys are getting more and more creative (devious?) in their attacks. You've seen the gory details of other districts that have been hacked in the news. Their success elsewhere has them constantly looking for new targets. We've had a few significant security events in this region in the last three months.

Those of you who know me know that I ask the question, "How do I know what I don't know?".

Managing technology in a public school district is much like herding cats.

The required tasks are overwhelming, but it simply must be done.

How do you know if there are backdoors in your network or if bad actors are trying to breach through your firewall to the inside of the network?

How do you know if a server is compromised, and your data is actively leaving the district?

Your technical staff is already pulled in six directions daily, so who is going to be able to honestly manage all of these extra tasks?

Many of you have implemented a good basic level of protection with strong endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools such as CSI's CSEDR powered by SentinelOne with the Vigilance SOC. As great as those tools are, they only see parts of your network.

Increasingly it is less about the bad guys deploying ransomware and more about stealing data (i.e. data exfiltration). As good as the tools we have in place are, we can no longer count on them alone to meet these increasing threats.

There has to be a better way to protect the entire district.

We believe we have that better way with CSI's CyberSentinel Managed XDR service powered by BlueShift Cyber.

The bad guys generally have to come from and go to the internet to hurt you. Managed XDR contains the BlueShift Cyber Security Operation Center (SOC) staffed with security analysts 24x7x365 watching over the entire network including all the inbound and outbound traffic. It builds and uses the other layers of protection to create the broadest and most complete visibility over your network.

And, since it is fully staffed, there is almost nothing for the district to do to manage this system.

We've been developing this service for at least two years. We'd love to show you what we've been up to.

Join Scott Quimby, CISSP, VP & CTO of CSI Tuesday, April 9 via Zoon at 2:00 pm ET and learn how to affordably address these challenges while fortifying your school system against cyber-attacks with affordable managed cybersecurity operations that rapidly detect and respond to advanced cyber threats.

Scott will be joined by Greg Scasny, CTO of Blueshift Cybersecurity. Greg has over 20 years of experience in IT and Information Security. He is a graduate of Purdue University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering and Technology, focusing on networking, security, and communications. Greg has a passion for handling complex business and security problems and creating innovative, scalable solutions that can be deployed quickly and operated efficiently.

Date: Wednesday, April 9th
Time: 2 pm - 3 pm

We hope to see you there!
