Roanoke conference focuses on cybersecurity, school safety
The Making Connections summit on school safety and cybersecurity was hosted by Roanoke County Public Schools and the Virginia Society for Technology in Education. The conference featured a panel discussion on the best practices in cybersecurity. David Raymond, the director of the Virginia Cyber Range at Virginia Tech, discussed how easily school systems, local governments and hospitals could fall victim to data breaches. Hackers often steal personal data then hold it for a large ransom, Raymond said.
