Managed Methods-Addressing Ransomware, Safety & Privacy Regulations in the Cloud
School districts are more reliant on cloud apps like Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 to help keep classrooms connected in any learning environment. The increased use of cloud apps by students, teachers, and staff have opened districts up to the many cyber threats often seen in the news.
Districts are a top target for ransomware attacks. While simultaneously experiencing student safety threats internally and ensuring they comply with government regulations. Regulations such as CIPA and Texas’ new Senate Bill 2116. Google Workspace, Microsoft 365, and the many cloud apps students and teachers now connect to their school accounts have made this more difficult for IT teams to stay ahead of.
Learn how ManagedMethods makes Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 security easy for your district. Prevent ransomware, control internal student safety and privacy threats, and stay compliant with CIPA and state regulations with K-12 cloud security made easy.
