School systems across the country face a steady stream of cybersecurity threats, from phishing e-mails to distributed denial of service attacks. In this EdWeek video, Associate Editor Sean Cavanagh draws from cybersecurity experts and district officials to talk about common-sense steps K-12 systems can take to mitigate cyberattacks. In some cases, that can mean better training for staff and having detailed plans in place for responding to crises. But it also means having tighter controls on internal networks and who can access them.
