Join us for a two-day seminar July 25-26, 2019, on this critically important topic.  This workshop is designed and led by experienced independent school technology leaders who understand the balance technology leaders must maintain between providing access to valuable resources and protecting school constituents. Each aspect of the workshop will be taught with a specific lens on the independent school technology environment. 

Attendees will depart the workshop prepared to lead an independent school through the security review process and undertake the steps necessary to ensure improved security for all areas (development, admissions, business, and academic functions), as well as the security of individual community constituents.  Register HERE for the workshop.

Topics addressed in depth include: 

  • Understanding exposure and risk tolerance;
  • Best practices and reasonable precautions;
  • Protected data: rules, regulations, and the right thing to do;
  • Comprehensive security policies;
  • Strategies for politics and persuasion on campus and beyond.
