As part of the NJSBA TEC program, New Jersey School Boards Association is offering webinars this spring on digital security and data storage.

NJSBA’s interactive and informative webinars are free, and make learning convenient. Viewers may watch webinars live to interact and ask questions, or watch the archived broadcast at any time. Pre-registration is required, and board members, administrators, and other district staff members are encouraged to participate.

The upcoming schedule of NJSBA TEC webinars is as follows:

Digital Security: Protecting Student and Staff Personal Information, May 9, 10 – 11 a.m. In K-12 districts, personal information is everywhere. Students, teachers, and employees’ personal, financial, and health care data exist throughout district networks. Districts are struggling with the legal and moral responsibility to protect student and staff personal information. Unfortunately, this data is more valuable; more under attack; and harder to protect than ever.

This webinar will help attendees better understand how and why school environments are prime targets for digital attacks. It will also review modern architectures around software-defined networking, and will provide information on ways districts can secure their networks. Learn how other districts have leveraged this architecture to build secure digital schools. Register Now for this webinar.

How Schools are Modernizing Data Storage, June 13, 10 – 11 a.m. Learn ways VMware is modernizing the way educational information/data is managed. Webinar participants will learn about a solution that enables schools to cost effectively provide next generation storage capabilities on a small, medium, and large scale. Register now for this webinar.
