Presented by: Linda Williams, Urban Pathways K-5 Charter School
RECORDING NOW AVAILABLE!

This workshop will support positive change in communities by organizing educators, parents and community supporters focused on racial equity. After a brief talk on the structure and format of racial committee planning followed by group discussion, workshop participants will be able to initiate their own groups. Participants aware of the community they would like to serve who also bring general ideas about goals for the potential group to accomplish, will find that they are able to gain more from the workshop experience. Additionally, racial equity groups already in place will consider strategies relevant for continued maturity and growth. Specifically, established groups will evaluate, strengthen and expand their organization’s support of race equity work as it relates to institutional and structural racism.

June 24, 2021, 1:00 PM- 2:00 PM: Understanding Cyber Risk: A Guide For Executives
Presented by: Nate Klein, Infradapt

It’s no secret, the threat posed by cyber-crime is at an all-time high. In fact, there was a 424% increase in cyber-attacks geared towards small business seen through 2020, and a startling 86% of breaches were financially motivated. Between financial deficits, business closures, and loss of client trust, the implications are detrimental.

As these criminals continually increase the complexity of their methodologies, organizations must stay two steps ahead of the trends by dynamically quantifying the dangers they face, and managing risk in an organized and repeatable manner. If not, they increase their risk of falling victim.

As with most complex challenges, this is easier said than done! Where do you start? How does your position as a technical or non-technical stakeholder in the organization play a role? And what can be done to organize and standardize departmental efforts?

Join Senior Account Executive, Nate Kline, as he provides an educational outline of a NIST backed approach for materializing your Charter School’s repeatable strategy for tackling cyber risk. He will take the time to review the “Frame, Assess, Respond, Monitor” approach that helps to define your organization’s risk appetite, and act accordingly to impending threats.

This will be a great session to help unify the efforts of administrative leaders throughout your organization to accomplish the goal of dynamically managing cyber risk.

This is an online event! Login instructions will be sent with your registration confirmation.
