“Let us not look back in anger or forward in fear, but around in awareness.”-James Thurber
One can’t read the headlines today without seeing a new data breach happen. Be it retail, credit ratings, travel, or education, no organization is immune to actions of those with bad intent and the capabilities to carry out attacks. The Board of Education has invested in modern firewalls and human resources to measure and mitigate security vulnerabilities. This year a required data privacy course was completed by BVSD employees and next year we plan to share a digital safety awareness campaign to help educate us all on our individual role in combating cyber attacks. We should not compromise security for convenience.
