This week on Lock and Code, we discuss the top security headlines generated right here on Labs and around the Internet. In addition, we talk to Doug Levin, founder of the K12 cybersecurity resource center and advisor to the K12 Security Information Exchange, about how schools can plan for a cybersecure 2021.
Education faced a crisis in the US this year, as the looming threat of the coronavirus forced schools across the country to develop new strategies for teaching. At Malwarebytes, we wanted to discover how these shifts impacted education cybersecurity.
Revealed for the first time in our newest report published today, “Lessons in cybersecurity: How schools coped in the shift to distance learning,” what we found concerned us.
Tune in to hear about how schools fared in transitioning to distance learning models, what cybersecurity precautions they did not adopt, and how they can prepare for the second half of the school year, on the latest episode of Lock and Code, with host David Ruiz.
