COVID19

The events associated with COVID19 have challenged us as IT professionals, family members, and neighbors.  As the world around us changes, so to do the resources and capabilities needed to address the challenge.  The increase in social restriction is significantly increasing our dependency on IT.  While most are focused on the resumption of operations, bad actors are looking to take advantage of the increased threat surface.  It is never too late to plan and ensure that the appropriate policies and  controls are in place for your organization.  We are highly motivated to make our value accessible to EDU K-12 in these unique times.  Please contact us to learn more, or schedule time to meet with an expert.  For those not in the market, please take time to inventory your cyber capabilities and business continuity plans.  Your organizations and communities  are depending on our ability to execute effectively and securely. 

Elephant in the Room

We have addressed the elephants in the room for you.

  • Budget

    The high cost of traditional assessments have disqualified EDU K - 12 from being able to access the services needed to effectively manage your security program. We created a tiered pricing model specifically tailored to making the management of cybersecurity progams affordable.

  • Regulation

    The focus and adoption of cybersecurity regulation at the state and federal level for K - 12 has IT teams struggling to figure out how to comply. We have worked with state agencies to populate our platform with regulatory requirements to make compliance easier.

  • Communication

    IT teams struggle to effectively communicate and provide our leadership with the information they need to make effective cybersecurity decisions. We understood the importance of effective communication and implemented a 24/7/365 dashboard and push button reporting.
