The REMS TA Center is excited to announce our NEW K-12 Cybersecurity Risk Management 101 Train-the-Trainer (TtT) Hybrid Training . Available through the Live Trainings by Request (TBRs) and Virtual Trainings by Request (VTBRs) programs, this synchronous training provides basic strategies that enhance cybersecurity planning in a K-12 school setting and can be delivered in person or virtually. This training will also cover how to develop a cyber incident response plan and how it can be integrated into school emergency operations plans (EOPs) via a Cyber Annex. The class size for the in-person training should be 25 attendees at a minimum and 100 attendees at a maximum, while the class size for the virtual training should be 25 attendees at a minimum and 475 attendees at a maximum.
