Cyber AwARe Summit

For Educators - The Cyber AwARe Summit

To celebrate National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we are offering a virtual summit for educators across the state of Arkansas. The goal of this summit is to familiarize educators with the ever-growing danger of cyber-attacks and to provide information and resources to help combat these threats.

Registration is free and can be attended virtually! All that's needed is a computer and a working internet connection. The Summit launches on October 15th and registered participants will be able to participate in the summit until November 15th. The event is approximately five hours long and can be viewed at any time between October 15th and November 15th. Participants will receive a digital certificate of attendance.

The summit will consist of educator-focused presentations on the following five important topics in cybersecurity:

  • Data Privacy and Cyber Laws
  • Understanding Our Cyber Landscape
  • Teaching Cyber Safety to Students
  • Staying Safe in a Virtual/Hybrid Classroom Environment
  • Cyber Tips, Shortcuts and Tricks to help Educators
