Become a Supporter Today
This site is maintained by EdTech Strategies, LLC as a free service to the K-12 community. If you value or benefit from this work, please consider making a donation and/or becoming a supporter today.
Keeping the K-12 Cyber Incident Map and related resources up-to-date takes a substantial amount of time, as does the production of original research and commentary on school cybersecurity-related issues. All of this costs money (as do the hard costs associated with hosting and maintaining a website, cyber incident database, and email newsletter). The main reason to support this work, thus, is to keep it independent and online. In addition, your support is integral to future enhancements to this site, including to the launching of a community of practice focused exclusively on issues of K-12 cybersecurity and to continuing important outreach and education efforts.
