Big news coming from Washington today! FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel just dropped an announcement about beefing up cybersecurity protections for school networks. She's rallying her fellow Commissioners to back a proposal that'll strengthen the security of our beloved schools.
In a speech to the School Superintendents Association and the Association of School Business officers, Rosenworcel spilled the beans about her plan to launch a pilot program. This program will invest in cybersecurity services for K-12 schools and libraries that are eligible.
Rosenworcel emphasized the urgency of the situation, given the spate of cyberattacks on schools, especially those pesky ransomware attacks that can seriously harm our students. She knows it's high time to take action and is proposing a massive investment of up to $200 million over three years. The goal? To reinforce the cyber defenses and figure out the most effective ways to keep our schools and libraries safe.
