Are you concerned about the IT security of your school? The first step to mitigate risk is to conduct a security audit of your entire IT environment. Working with your IT team or Managed Service Provider (MSP), you can review user accounts, update workstations and servers with recent patches, upgrade to the latest versions of your business software, and determine security technology gaps to ensure you are in the best position possible to avert and maintain operations if you are a cyberattack target. In this session, we will cover how you can know your exposure and the strategies that secure your IT systems.
