Building Technology Infrastructure for Learning
Education infrastructure is undeniably critical infrastructure, and in the digital age, the need to prioritize cybersecurity has become more apparent than ever. Just as we work to provide physical infrastructure for our schools that is safe, healthy, and supportive for all students, the time has come to align resources towards creating a digital infrastructure that is equally safe, accessible, resilient, sustainable, and future-proof. The Department, in partnership with CISA, has released the K-12 Digital Infrastructure Brief: Defensible and Resilient to highlight cybersecurity recommendations and promising practices from states and districts across the country.
The product released today from the Department of Education and CISA provides K-12 school districts across our communities a starting place to understand the importance of securing our digital infrastructure, and provides steps schools can take today to keep their systems safe. CISA encourages all Administrators, school districts, and teachers to read through this helpful guide and take the recommended actions to reduce risk to the digital infrastructure our children use and rely on each and every day.
