Episode 88 - A Chat with Randy Rose from MS-ISAC

It has been a busy week in the realm of K12 cybersecurity. News broke earlier in the week about LA Unified School District being hit with a ransomware event.  Mark and Josh discuss LAUSD's response and transparency shown via their Twitter account - Los Angeles Unified (@LASchools) / Twitter

The majority of the episode is dedicated to a chat with Randy Rose with the MS-ISAC and Center for Internet Security. Randy talks about some of the things that MS-ISAC can help K12's address in the cyber realm, but he also talks in depth about the alert released Tuesday by FBI/CISA/DHS/MS-ISCAC. This alert was directed at K12 about a very active cyber threat from Vice Society.

Episode 85 - Tyler Tech and Infinite Campus Interview

This is the big episode we have been looking forward to for weeks. We sat down with the CEO of Infinite Campus, Charlie Kratsch, and Sean Marlow, Senior VP at Tyler Technologies. This entire episode is dedicated to the recently announced partnership between Tyler and Infinite Campus. We ask questions like, what does migration look like, how many years of data will be imported, what about IEPs, what about court order files, how expensive is Infinite Campus, and the list goes on. We also got a quick tour of Charlie's office and his collection of cool stuff.

We realize that we might not have asked every question that needed to be asked, but we feel like if you are a Tyler SIS customer you will have a much better idea of what to expect over the next few months if you decide to migrate to Infinite Campus.

This was not a compensated episode. So please, buy our merch from our store! lololol
