Dynetics will showcase its information technology solutions at the Alabama Education Technology Association (AETA) Fall Conference, Sept. 28-Oct. 1, at Orange Beach's Perdido Beach Resort.
Dynetics provides wireless and data center solutions to educational institutions, which rely on massive amounts of bandwidth with the growing use of tablets, smartphones and electronic classrooms. The company also helps schools secure networks and protect sensitive information.
"There is a tremendous amount of personal data in today's educational environment, which creates privacy concerns as well as requirement to comply with various regulations," said Nichole O'Brien, manager of the Dynetics Information Engineering Branch. These regulations include the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
AETA is an organization comprised of professionals who work primarily in K-12 educational technology in Alabama public school systems.
