Since the K-12 Cyber Incident Map was launched in March of 2017, it has been instrumental in drawing attention to the emerging cybersecurity threats facing U.S. K-12 public schools and districts. Since that time the Map and related resources have been:
- Cited in testimony to the U.S. Congress, State legislatures, and federal agencies;
- Cited in major media, education trade outlets, podcasts, and blogs; and
- Used by school district leaders and educators to help advocate and plan for better cybersecurity practices.
The K-12 Cybersecurity Resource Center (https://www.k12cybersecure.com) is the new home of the Map and will be devoted solely to issues of school cybersecurity and privacy issues. It is maintained as a free, independent resource for the K-12 community by EdTech Strategies, LLC. If you value or benefit from this work, please consider becoming a supporter.
