As schools are increasingly targets for cyberattacks, many are considering cyberinsurance policies to help mitigate the potential impact of these attacks. However, cyberinsurance policies can also provide guidance for schools to focus their resources on the most impactful measures to improve their cybersecurity posture.
CDT’s latest training materials guide tech leaders on how to take advantage of cyberinsurance screening questionnaires to identify effective cybersecurity improvements to make their systems more robust and secure. The training covers cybersecurity practices like:
- Providing training for school staff,
- Maintaining system backups, and
- Ensuring the school maintains retention and deletion policies.
Cyberinsurance company applications provide an overview of important cybersecurity improvements schools can make to their systems. This training will help tech leaders identify these improvements and clarify the benefits they confer.
