M.A. Polce to Co-Host Virtual Lunch and Learn with Blackpoint Cyber for School Districts in New York State


Invitation for K-12 Decision Makers to Discover How Strategic Partnerships Facilitate Modern Cybersecurity Programs

(Rome, NY – June 05, 2024)– M.A. Polce, a local IT and cybersecurity services provider, is thrilled to announce its collaboration with Blackpoint Cyber to co-host an informative virtual Lunch and Learn session on cybersecurity for school districts across New York State.

This panel-style event, scheduled for Tuesday, July 23, 2024, at 11:30 AM, will feature industry experts from M.A. Polce and Blackpoint Cyber. The session aims to explore the advantages of partnering with a security service provider for Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services, offering K-12 decision-makers a comprehensive understanding of MDR offerings in preparation for the upcoming school year.

K-12 IT professionals, data privacy officers, superintendents, and business officials are invited to attend this virtual session to gain insights into the latest with how ransomware actually unfolds within an environment, the drawbacks of budget security solutions, and what “partnership” means in an MDR engagement. The knowledge shared during this session will empower attendees to make informed decisions for their district’s cybersecurity.

Rick Pollard, VP of Strategy and Business Development at M.A. Polce, emphasizes the benefits of partnering with a security provider versus relying solely on security tools.

“Security providers have certified professionals who can evaluate a school district’s security posture and, through strategic collaboration, build personalized solutions,” said Pollard. Many organizations invest in tools without a comprehensive strategy or the necessary guidance, which limits their success.”

This collaborative effort between M.A. Polce and Blackpoint Cyber aims to provide school districts with invaluable insights into how strategic partnerships facilitate modern cybersecurity programs.
