Decoding the FCC Cybersecurity Pilot for Schools and Libraries

FCC Cybersecurity Pilot Program

What Does the FCC Cybersecurity Pilot Program Mean for Your School? 

Cyber threats pose a significant risk to the integrity of school and library networks, demanding robust cybersecurity measures. Recognizing this imperative, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has launched the Cybersecurity Pilot Program, allocating up to $200 million in competitive grants over three years to purchase cybersecurity services and equipment. As educational institutions gear up to enhance their cyber defenses, Xiologix stands ready to empower schools and libraries through tailored cybersecurity solutions to protect end-user devices owned by schools and libraries, such as desktop computers, laptops, and mobile devices, from potential cyber threats and attacks. 

Understanding the FCC Cybersecurity Pilot Program

The FCC Cybersecurity Pilot Program is a transformative initiative aimed at fortifying the cyber resilience of educational institutions nationwide. With a focus on providing financial assistance, the program enables schools and libraries to invest in advanced cybersecurity tools and technologies. From next-generation firewalls to advanced anti-virus protection, the program provides funds for educational institutions to ensure they seek solutions to mitigate cyber threats effectively. 

The FCC established the Schools and Libraries Cybersecurity Pilot Program (Pilot Program) to gather the data needed to better understand whether and how universal service funds like E-rate could be used to support schools’ and libraries’ cybersecurity needs. 

Your school can apply to be part of the program and provide valuable information about the type of cybersecurity services and equipment you would request in the Pilot Program to address cybersecurity threats facing schools and libraries, including being targeted by malicious actors who seek to steal personal information, compromise online accounts, cause online harm or embarrassment, or otherwise disable/disrupt critical networks that provide broadband connectivity.
