    I am an avid listener to the MacAdmin's Podcast - https://podcast.macadmins.org/ - as I consider it "swimming in the deep end of the pool."  The topics span all aspects of being an enterprise MacAdmin, but it is grounded in the fact that most hosts have a background in education. 

    ONE: In a recent podcast episode, they talked with Robin Lauren about Human Centered Security. I found the episode incredibly thoughtful and helpful as we think about how we work with faculty, staff, administrators, and students when we deploy equipment, set policies and guidelines, and think about training as a whole.

    TIP - I always listen to podcasts at 1.25x speed to get through the content in a timely manner.

    TWO: Tech & Learning published a recent article on - School Ransomware Attacks: 5 Tips to Prevent & Survive. It's a quick read, and the tips are practical and easy to follow.

    Great resources, Bill! Thanks for sharing. I liked the quick and easy tips like keeping a printed copy of your incident response plan (and key contacts!) in a secure location.

    If anyone needs additional help, don't forget to download your free copy of the ATLIS cybersecurity recommendations for independent schools

    Warmly,
