Alert Logic's Eric Irvin Addresses Security Issues Facing K-12 School Districts

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - October 4, 2010) -

WHO Eric Irvin, System Engineer, Alert Logic
WHAT How I'd Hack Your School: Understanding the Importance of Protecting Information in K-12 Environments
WHEN October 14, 2010
  2:00pm - 3:00pm EDT


Alert Logic has seen, first hand, the effects of how the rapid changes on the Internet have increased the risks amongst K-12 school districts. Schools are a prime target for a hacker due to the significant amount of staff and student personal data stored on the network. In addition, threats inside the firewall, such as a student gaining access to personal data, are equally as dangerous.

Join Alert Logic for an informational webinar where system engineer, Eric Irvin, will review:

  • Where today's security breaches are occurring and who's behind them;
  • How to take a more proactive approach to mitigating risks such as asset discovery and vulnerability assessment; and,
  • Why intrusion protection, vulnerability assessment and log management can affordably make your environment more secure and compliant.
