The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), and its Texas state affiliate chapter, The Texas K-12 CTO Council, are honored to support the work of current and aspiring superintendents and district leadership teams in leading all aspects of digital learning transformations.

In today’s world it seems there is not a week that goes by without a news story related to some sort of breach in security for one organization or another. As school districts rely more and more on digital tools for data records, instruction, and many other facets of school or district operations, it is incumbent upon school leaders to understand the issues around cybersecurity and take appropriate actions to prevent any sort of breach within school data systems. CoSN is pleased to support school leaders in communicating the urgency around cybersecurity by providing a brief overview of the top five reasons why schools and districts must make cybersecurity a priority.

CoSN, in partnership with, hosts The Empowered Superintendent monthly webinar series on topics that are essential for all educators engaged in leading digital transformations. School superintendents serve as panelists on each webinar and share their stories and expertise. The focus of the November 11, 2019, webinar (4 p.m. CT) is cybersecurity.
