Every year, more and more of our critical activities are conducted on and migrated onto digital platforms. Every year, the number of cyberattacks against school districts–of all sizes and demographics–increases. Our need to protect our data and our systems from cyberattacks has never been greater.
To that end, and so that we as a District can continue to be protected by cyber liability insurance, we will be implementing a number of cybersecurity measures in the coming months. These steps make up our newest cybersecurity initiative: #LeboSECURE.
While all of these measures will be in place at the beginning of the 2022-2023 school year, many of them will be available to you sooner if you’d like to experiment in advance and ask questions prior to next Fall. In the coming days and weeks, we will be sending help documents and sharing guidance to address the four components of #LeboSECURE (see below). Thank you in advance for your careful consideration of these documents. They contain important information regarding changes and considerations that will affect your future interactions with our MTLSD network.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work towards making our District #LeboSECURE. Our employees are the first and best line of defense against cyberattacks.
