The Joplin School District came to us knowing that they had work to do to improve their cybersecurity posture. They were using legacy cybersecurity tools like a next generation firewall with an intrusion prevention module, antivirus on endpoints, and basic vulnerability patching. They saw multiple municipalities and school districts falling victim to ransomware attacks. An industry veteran and the network administrator for the Joplin School District, Vince Crossley, wanted to be proactive and make sure that they were not the next victim on the news due to a lack of visibility and response capability. He and his team are responsible for keeping technology operational and secure so that Joplin can educate over 7,000 students.
