Practices: K-12

Most school districts depend on multiple external vendors and partners to support their business activities as part of their supply chain. These complex supply chains are attractive targets for cybercriminals.

It’s time to shine more light on the supply chain as an abuse vector. Emails impersonating a trusted business partner are more likely to trick the target into taking an unauthorized action. These business email compromise (BEC) attacks are hard to detect and increasingly malicious.

Join Christopher Montgomery, Proofpoint Principal Solution Architect, to review cybersecurity best practices for school districts of comparable size. We’ll highlight:

  • Analysis and peer comparison of school district threat data
  • Threat intelligence trends and how they impact schools
  • Third-party and supply chain risks faced by schools
  • Best practices for identifying and mitigating these threats
