ZeroNow, the industry alliance formed to drive ideas, innovation, and investment to advance school safety, has announced a new partnership with Credo Cyber Consulting.

“Schools can be soft targets for cyber criminals,” said ZeroNow Founder and Board President Ara Bagdasarian. “Credo Cyber Consulting brings critical knowledge to the ZeroNow alliance that will help prepare schools to avoid the breaches and hacks that can lead to stolen identities, destroyed records, hijacked website and ultimately shut a school down. We are pleased to welcome Credo as a partner.”
