Internal Controls in a Virtual World (While Preventing Cyber Attacks and Protecting PII)

July 13, 2021

1:00 pm – 2:30 pm EST

Presented by Steve Spillan and Aaron Kramer Brosnan


Course Description:

In 2020, cyberattacks against schools increased 20% over 2019. Studies show that school staff are five times more likely to engage in risky online behavior at home versus at school. In light of these threats, what can grantees do to strengthen their internal controls and prevent breaches of student data? This session will discuss the Uniform Grants Guidance requirements for internal controls and Federal standards for information security, as well as provide practical tips to implement these controls in the work-from-home environment.
