What did Delaware County Literacy Council want to talk about?

Want to make sure our internal hardwired network (no server) is secure with our new Xfinity Wifi Voice & Data Modem bringing in Internet (we have 3 Unifi WiFi hubs on our network).

Additional Context

I may want a few more lessons on managing this WiFi network securely. Our current network is hardwired to about 40 computers. Our nonprofit holds classes and tutoring in our building, in addition to staff usage. We will most likely be using more laptops in classrooms in the coming year.

Also, I have an unresolved question re: the Unifi system. Should we go to the Cloud Key to manage the Unifi?

In the past, we were advised to purchase and implement a UniFi Cloud Key (https://store.ubnt.com/products/unifi-cloud-key) to easily control and manage our three wireless access points. This will eliminate the need for me to have the UniFi controller application (and Java 8) installed on my machine (my current setup). They also offered to help us update the WAP firmware.

Any help you could offer on the above issues would also be appreciated!
