As the coronavirus pandemic wears on and back to school time is upon us, districts are facing decisions about reopening in person, offering virtual learning options, or doing both. To talk about the challenges of distance education including access, funding, student learning, and, of course, cybersecurity, we welcome Amy McLaughlin, Cybersecurity Project Director for the Consortium for School Networking – Amy discusses solutions some schools have come up with, why different age groups are better suited for virtual learning than others, why funding formulas are challenging, and her biggest concern with online education moving forward during COVID-19.

Our cybersecurity headlines segment includes some scary news about email vulnerabilities, a GandCrabber getting caught, and updates on the Twitter hack and WastedLocker ransomware stories from our previous episode.
