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 — as well as to underwrite future enhancements to the services offered by the site.

Ways to support this work:

  • Spread the word! (free)

Sign up for Keeping #K12Cybersecure, the newsletter of the K-12 Cybersecurity Resource Center, and recommend it to colleagues. Follow @K12CyberMap on Twitter. Write articles or blog posts that link to the K-12 Cyber Incident Map or resources published on this site. Contact me with tips, suggestions, or if you are interested in the rights to re-publish copyrighted content on your site.

  • Volunteer to contribute a guest post (school district IT practitioners only)

On a case-by-case basis – and at its sole discretion – the K-12 Cybersecurity Resource Center entertains guest post inquiries from practicing school district IT leaders. Guest posts can feature a range of vendor-agnostic topics relevant to cybersecurity research and/or best practices/model policies. Contact me for further details and consideration.

  • Sponsor the ‘State of K-12 Cybersecurity: Year in Review’ report series

The K-12 Cybersecurity Resource Center compiles K-12 cyber incident trends annually in a high-profile, interactive report series (“The State of K-12 Cybersecurity: Year in Review”). Sponsoring organizations are provided a range of benefits, based on their level of support. Sponsorship is now being accepted for the 2020 annual report, as described in the 2020 Sponsorship Brochure

  • Request a paid speaking engagement for your event (negotiable)

Receive research-based and entertaining insights into K-12 cybersecurity threats, trends, and risk mitigation strategies tailored to your audience: policymakers; administrators, teachers, and staff; sales and marketing teams; security professionals, etc. (A sampling of past and future speaking engagements can be found here.) Contact me with your requirements and event dates.

  • Commission custom research, writing, or consulting (negotiable)

The K-12 Cyber Incident Map is powered by a unique database of information about school cybersecurity incidents and the districts they’ve affected.
