Incident Response is a Team Sport: A Cybersecurity Event to be Hosted by VSTE, VDOE K-12 IT Advisory and NCI

Martinsville, VA – New College Institute (NCI), in partnership with Virginia Society for Technology in Education (VSTE), and Virginia Department of Education’s K-12 IT Advisory, is pleased to announce its upcoming cybersecurity experiential planning event titled “Incident Response is a Team Sport”. The event is set to take place on March 30, 2023 from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm, and will be held at NCI in Martinsville, VA.

The event is targeted at K-12 leadership including IT professionals, cybersecurity experts, and educators interested in learning more about and planning for incident response and management. The event will feature presentations from experts in the field; including Dr. Tara Nattrass from Dell Technologies, Dr. David Raymond from Virginia Tech Cyber Range, Philip Harmon from Woods Rogers Vandeventer Black PLC, Roanoke, VA, and Sergio Orellana of BinaryLab.  Topics such as threat intelligence, incident response planning, and best practices for managing cyber incidents will be addressed. The objective for the day is for schools to leave with a draft of an Incident Response Plan (IRP) if they do not already have one, or to enhance the one they already have as a result of interacting with cybersecurity and legal experts during the day.

“We are thrilled to host this event and bring together experts in the field to share their insights and experiences with our attendees,” said Dr. Susheela Shanta, Coordinator of K-12 Programs & Institutional Data for NCI. “Cybersecurity threats are becoming increasingly sophisticated and widespread, and it’s more important than ever for K-12 educational institutions to have a robust incident response plan in place. Our event will provide attendees with valuable knowledge and skills to help them better manage cybersecurity incidents and protect their organizations from potential threats.”
