Location: President Gerald R. Ford Ballroom/Van Andel Arena

8:30 am – 4:30 pm

160 – Technology Pre-Conference

Description: Cybersecurity continues to be an important issue for school leaders. Many organizations such as The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency, and K12 Security Information eXchange (K12 SIX) provide resources for schools and districts to use to identify risks, protect networks and information security, and detect issues. When faced with a breach, leaders also need to be prepared to respond and recover. Join us in the morning to create and strengthen your Incident Response Plan. In the afternoon, learn how Van Andel Arena approaches the issues to technology and security.

160e – Van Andel Arena Tour

Description: The lines between technology and facilities have blurred considerably as we recognize how more and more building systems – from climate control to access control – are all running over a network. Schools are not unique. Large public arenas, for example, interact with multitudes of different customers every day, and much of that interaction is done digitally. They also have many spaces requiring climate control and security. How do they integrate their technology efforts with their facilities? Learn from the experts at the Van Andel Arena how they approach these issues to ensure everything interfaces seamlessly. We’ll also tour the arena to see where many of these operations take place.

Presenter(s): Chris Anderson, Dave Broekstra, Brian Buckingham, Jeff Dubin, and Todd Johnson, DeVos Place
