The Learning Technology Centers, in partnership with the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE), are facilitating a one-day data and security symposium on April 19 and April 20. Participants will learn current legal requirements for data security and share K12 privacy and data security concerns. Best practices will be provided along with updates on ISBE’s Education Data Systems, including Ed360, SIS, MyIRC and the Illinois Report Card. Andre Bouranev, a DDoS mitigation expert from DoIT/ICN will provide a glimpse into how hackers find vulnerabilities in K12 communities and exploit them to launch devastating DDoS attacks.
