New Cyber Defense Tools
As we all know, K-12 organizations large and small are continually inundated with cyberattacks and it’s getting worse every year. Insurance providers are having to adapt to an increased cost of ransomware attacks, with some insurance companies no longer renewing policies altogether. As part of our commitment to our members, SET SEG has been working tirelessly to find tools and processes that better protect districts from cybercrime.
To help defend our members from cyberthreats, SET SEG has partnered with Tetra Defense, a leading cyber defense firm that has significant experience with the education industry. After a strenuous search for the perfect cyber defense partner from our Cyber Defense Task Force, we found Tetra Defense to be the best possible option for our members due in part to their education-based approach. The organization offers a customized learning experience, providing members with a tailored knowledgebase that informs users of threats based on scans of their own systems using Tetra Defense’s MyCyber platform.
Soon, as part of our cyber insurance coverage, members will receive monthly scans from Tetra Defense identifying any weak spots in their network that bad actors could take advantage of. Users will then receive a breakdown of imminent and less-pressing threats as well as a number of cyber hygiene projects to resolve them.
Resources provided by the MyCyber platform aren’t just basic FAQs you could find on the internet. The recommended cyber hygiene projects and associated threats are defined by professionals tirelessly engaging these cyberthreats every day. The information your district will soon have access to is the most relevant information available regarding cyber defense.
