Solving the Network Security Crisis for Anchors

November 16, 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. ET

Cyberattacks on schools, libraries, and other anchor institutions are persistent, escalating at a substantial cost to budgets, privacy, and operations. Estimates suggest that cyberattacks cost schools and colleges an average seven days of downtime and financial losses exceeding $6 billion. Unfortunately, the federal E-rate program does not cover cybersecurity expenses. In this webinar, experts from education and the industry will explore ways that the policy environment could better support cyber protections for anchor institution broadband.
