No school district should feel alone when facing a cyber attack.
Arkansas’ P-12 Cyber Threat Response Team represents a collaborative effort among Arkansas Cooperative Technology Coordinators, Arkansas Team Digital, and the Arkansas Division of Information Systems (DIS). The Cyber Threat Response Team is a small group of IT professionals who are willing and ready to provide onsite support, at no cost to the district, whenever an Arkansas school district is faced with a cyber threat. Information collected through the P-12 Cyber Threat Response Team will only be used to inform and protect Arkansas school districts.
School districts should communicate with their DIS Field Technician or Co-op Technology Coordinator any time they are experiencing a cyber attack (regardless if onsite support is needed). It is important that we all communicate to better protect one another.
Any school district facing a cyber threat can activate the Cyber Threat Response Team by contacting their local DIS Field Technician or Co-op Technology Coordinator. Upon request, the Cyber Threat Response Team will send our Cyber Threat First Responders to help isolate the incident, assess the situation, recover network/data/systems when possible, and implement prevention strategies.
