Developing an effective security awareness program can significantly decrease the likelihood of a data breach or cyber attack within your organization. Successful implementation starts with creating awareness and is maintained through ongoing training. Building the human capital in this domain is one of the most effective practices in keeping your students safe.

"In order to protect our schools from cyber threats and data breaches, it is important for our education professionals to understand basic security principles. ADE's excellent campaign to teach educators the essentials of information security will minimize human error and reduce the chance of successful cyber attacks on our school districts."
- Gov. Asa Hutchinson
