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.
“The COVID-19 Pandemic has significantly affected the Education Sector resulting in a greater dependency on online learning and mobile workforce.
