Centennial School District Case Study

School Systems Rocked by Recent Cyber Attacks. Here’s how One Decided to Take Action.

What You’ll Learn

Fran Watkins, Network and Systems Administrator for Centennial School District, was solely responsible for protecting the critical technology infrastructure of the district when an abrupt event in a neighboring school system triggered an extensive review of how Centennial protected its network. “A neighboring school district was hit with a ransomware attack and it was kind of a shock to us all,” he stated. “We knew if it could happen to them, it could happen to anybody, and I was the one with the responsibility to make sure that it didn’t happen on my watch. The problem was that I wear many hats and I’m a one-person shop when it comes to security, so I knew we were going to need some help.”
