Do You Have Cyber Storm Emergency Plan?

School districts are on a bullet train headed to Digital Education. The prevailing wisdom is it better to ignore the risks than derail the train. The cloud, internet of things (loT), devises of all kinds (BYOD), software licenses galore, Google Docs and a plethora of other cloud based platforms together with every piece of hardware all his cyber related risk. The risk of experiencing a Cyber event that shuts your school down is not a question of if but is a question of when. Having a cyber event is starting to feel like having a bad snowstorm in that you know it may shut school down and that you will be expected to dig school out. Are you ready? Do you have a Cyber Storm Emergency Plan?

Rick Hillman and Tanya Dawson will talk about their experiences as shared administrators of two district. They will show how, despite these districts being across the street, couldn’t be more dissimilar in their cyber risk profile and how they developed a must have, must know and must be kept up-to-date list of IT related facts in order to recover from a cyber event. Washington Township (Gloucester County) had a Cyber Audit conducted in their district in the summer of 2017 and will discuss how the audit helped them to discover risks they did not know they had and how they changed to minimize them. A white paper was created from the two member district audits and will be distributed and discussed.

QUEST SPEAKER - Garrison Wynn

A Brunch Speaker Sure to Entertain and Get You Thinking!

Noted motivational speaker Garrison Wynn will bring his extensive business and organizational experience – as well as his comic timing – to our members at the NJASBO Conference on Friday morning, June 8.

Wynn is a fascinating person. In addition to being a speaker, advisor, and author, he also has a background in manufacturing, telecommunications, financial services and entertainment. As a teenager, Wynn worked with baseball legend Hank Aaron and Magnavox to promote the world’s first video gaming system. By the age of 27, he had become the youngest department head in a Fortune 500 company’s history. He has dug ditches and survived a chemical plant explosion. His background in industrial instrumentation helped him develop and market industrial products still being sold in 30 countries. Plus, Wynn has two film credits to his name, spent six years touring as a stand-up comedian, and hosted television specials and national radio programs.

Wynn has given keynote presentations to clients (American Express, Wells Fargo, Oracle, and NASA, among many others) at corporate and association events. And now, he will be speaking to us!

This is a brunch you do not want to miss!
