With a rise in cyber attacks against public schools, it’s important for district administration and board leaders to be prepared. This spring, the Diligent Institute and PennSSI will provide an online certification program to help public education leaders better understand and fully embrace their role in providing strategic direction and oversight of cyber risk and emerging technologies. Preference may be given to applicants who are part of a PSBA All Access district. The first 200 licenses, which are valued at $3,500 per license, will be awarded to applicants complimentary of the PSBA Trust 

Applications for this certification program are due by March 31, 2024. Applicants will be notified of their status in mid-April. During an eight-week period beginning on May 1, accepted applicants will receive a biweekly email with the release of a new course.
