White House Cybersecurity Summit for K-12 Schools
On Tuesday, August 8, 2023, the Biden-Harris Administration announced new efforts to strengthen cybersecurity in America’s K-12 school systems during an event held at the White House. First Lady Jill Biden was joined by Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona and Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas in welcoming school administrators, educators, and private sector companies to the event to discuss best practices and new resources available to strengthen cybersecurity throughout our nation’s school systems. CoSN CE Keith Krueger and CoSN Board Chair Diane Doersch joined the other participants at the White House for this critically important conversation.
During the White House Cybersecurity Summit, several new and continuing federal initiatives were shared that aim to meet the growing challenges involved in assuring that cybersecurity is both a top priority and a successful endeavor for all school districts.
