Incident Response Is a Team Sport – VSTE/NCI Event

Incident Response is a Team Sport, is an event that will provide participants with an experience demonstrating how a cybersecurity incident can unfold and how to respond to one using an Incident Response Plan (IRP).

K-12 division-level leadership including superintendents, assistant superintendents, technology directors, network admins,  and other critical staff who would be involved in making high-level cybersecurity incident decisions should attend. The objective for the day is for schools to leave with a draft of an IRP if they do not already have one, or to augment or enhance the one they already have as a result of interacting with cybersecurity and legal experts during the day.  Division-level teams are preferred.

The morning sessions will feature experts in the field of cybersecurity presenting topics and current themes relevant to the K-12 school communities regarding the real threats and critical responses to those situations. The afternoon sessions will provide smaller group breakout sessions geared toward technical simulations of a cyber incident, and the legal and operational issues schools need to manage in a cybersecurity incident.

Lunch will be provided.
