Upcoming Trainings

Cyber-Preparedness Lunch & Learn | December 2, 2022, 11:30a-1:30p | Irving ISD

 

Texas Educational Technology Leaders (TETL) invites you to a lunch & learn discussion that details the importance of cyber-preparedness not only for technology, but also for business continuity and financial security. We have partnered with Crowdstrike, a leader in cybersecurity intelligence and services nationwide, and Strategic Partnerships Inc, to help cover emerging tools and trends with your district leaders. We encourage you to invite superintendents, school board members, and business officials from your district to help expand the conversation about cybersecurity past the technology sphere. For security reasons, everyone will need to have their driver’s license scanned as they enter the building. Space is limited, so please register in advance.

 

There is no cost for the event, but we want to make sure we get a good count for lunch! REGISTER HERE: https://tetllunchandlearn.splashthat.com/
