It’s critical for schools to address growing cybersecurity challenges. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is here to help the K12 community enhance cybersecurity. K-12 networks must protect against cyber intrusions, ransomware attacks, and data breaches.
To help schools across the nation implement cloud-based cybersecurity solutions, AWS is investing $20 million in AWS promotional credits to new and existing AWS customers.
