June 21, 2022, Miami: Campus Consortium, a leading global Nonprofit education association, is pleased to announce that it has awarded $100,000 Technology In-Kind Grant to Stonington Public Schools for 24/7 Cloud Service to Prevent, Detect, Analyze and Respond to Cybersecurity Threats (SOC – as- a – Service). The SOC service will enable the institution to detect cyber threats, protect their data and assets with certified regulatory compliances, avoid additional costs of maintaining a cybersecurity team and leverage the expertise of a trained security team 24/7. 

“Single Sign-On helps us improve the student, parents, faculty and staff online experience. Our new system decreases IT support requirements and increases efficiency for our community,” said Leila Shatara, Head of School, Noor-Ul-Iman School.

We were looking for an affordable and effective IT solution for our campus cybersecurity. The Security Operations Center-as-a-Service Grant provides advanced security supported by trained specialists and significantly reduces the possibility of cyber threats,” said Michael Klein, Director of Information Technology, Killingly Public Schools. 

“Data Security and Identity Assessment are some of our concerns. The IT Security and Vulnerability Assessment and SOC-as-a-Service Grants will help us implement a technology platform to minimize vulnerabilities and inefficiencies,” said Jorge Martinez, Director of Instructional/Information Technology, Valley View Independent School District. 

“We are committed to serve all educational institutions from primary and secondary education school districts to Higher Education Colleges and Universities. A wide variety of programs and services provide support, innovation and opportunities for all.
