According to the K12 Security Information eXchange, student data is one of the top commodities on the dark web. That’s because it’s not monitored as closely as data generated by adults, giving criminals more time to exploit information including social security numbers and medical histories.  “Students don’t have established credit, so we need to do […]

When the IT department at Duval County Public Schools made a remote learning platform seven years ago, it was intended to be used in case there was a hurricane and students couldn’t come in.

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Schools like Ohio State University and the University of Florida have tens of thousands of students enrolled, endowments in the billions and IT departments that make tech enthusiasts weak at the knees.

It’s all in the timing. Or it’s gone, but not forgotten.

Testimonials

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features. It is without reservation that I highly recommend other businesses partnering with this publication and I look forward to an opportunity to work with them again in the future.
