The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) will host a virtual summit for school safety professionals this fall. The 2022 National Summit on K-12 School Safety and Security will be held on November 1-3, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day.
Security leaders can attend the summit to connect with their peers, assess trends in school safety, and discuss evidence-based K-12 security strategies. Focusing on physical security, targeted violence and cybersecurity is key for school safety leaders entering the 2022-2023 school year, according to Dr. David Mussington, Executive Assistant Director for Infrastructure Security at CISA.
According to CISA, issues such as targeted violence, violence prevention, cybersecurity, emergency planning and physical security will be discussed during the summit. "The event is designed to foster a nationwide dialogue on school safety, as well as equip school stakeholders and personnel with resources, training and expertise to apply in their local school settings and communities," said the agency in a statement.
