Vulnerabilities in Virtual Schooling – The Right Security
September 14, 2020 • RBS
Mark Arnold, VP of Advisory Services at LARES, joins Jake Kouns, CEO and CISO at Risk Based Security, to talk about a timely and potentially serious cybersecurity issue: cyber security in virtual learning.
The 2019-20 school year ended abruptly for many school districts due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Schools quickly pivoted to virtual classes in order to finish the school year, and many schools are now beginning the new school year with classes conducted via Zoom, Google Meet and the like, often via school-issued laptops or Chromebooks.
That potentially means a flood of vulnerable devices connecting to home and daycare provider networks, which were hardly the most secure environments to begin with.
In this episode of The Right Security, Jake Kouns and Mark Arnold tackle some of the issues raised, and give tips on how school districts, teachers and parents can help to protect the security and privacy of their children and students.
