Responding to and Preventing Student Information System Breaches
8:00 AM - 11:00 AM: AM Workshops
Room: Galleria I (Hilton Portland Downtown)
Format: Pre/Post Conference Half-day Workshop - 3 Hours
Brief Session Description: Is your district ready to deal with the aftermath of a student data breach? Do you have the policies, governance, and communications strategies in place to address the incident? Do you know the best practices for preventing data breachers? In this workshop, participants will take part in a tabletop exercise - a meeting to discuss a simulated emergency - focused on a Student Information System Breach. Following the exercise, participants will work through exercises to understand and apply the SANS Top 20 or Critical Controls for Information Security. This interactive session will help participants understand the SANS Top 20, identify specific changes they can make to improve security, prioritize recommended changes, and walk away with three specific actions to implement for improved security.
