This page will house cyber security resources for PACE members. It will be continually updated with relevant resources, so check back to see what is new!
Cyberattacks against organizations across the world have grown in frequency, severity and sophistication. Nationwide, educational institutions have proven to be especially vulnerable. Over the past two years, PACE has helped its members be more prepared for such attacks by requiring certain cybersecurity measures be in place to qualify for the AIG cyber coverage offered to members. While these requirements help protect PACE trust dollars by mitigating claims, the goal is to simply protect PACE members from attacks so that they can continue to deliver the quality services the public expects of them.
PACE is pleased to announce a new grant program to help offset some of the cost of implementing cybersecurity tools or services. Each PACE member is now eligible for a grant of up to $500 to implement one or more of the cybersecurity measures listed below.
