D219 Superintendent Search – Community Input

D219 Superintendent Search — Community Focus Groups and Forums

Our expectation is to ensure that stakeholders throughout the District 219 communities have an opportunity to share their views with us. In addition to the online Community Survey, HYA will facilitate two community forums for members of the communities.

Community w/out School-Age Children FORUM

HYA will also host focus group conversations with teachers, staff, students, administrators, parent leaders, as well as civic leaders and leaders from the District’s feeder schools. Those small groups will receive individual invitations.  Feedback from these forums and focus groups, in combination with the data from our online survey, will be used to create a customized Superintendent Leadership Profile representing the priorities of our communities and the next Superintendent.

Cybersecurity First – 2021 Cybersecurity Awareness Month – Week 4

Cybersecurity FirstWhy Is Cybersecurity Important Tip Sheet

Cybersecurity is the art of protecting networks, devices, and data from unlawful access or criminal use and the practice of guaranteeing confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information. Communication, transportation, shopping, and medicine are just some of the things that rely on computers systems and the Internet now. Much of your personal information is stored either on your computer, smartphone, tablet or possibly on someone else’s system. Knowing how to protect the information that you have stored is of high importance not just for an individual but for an organization and those in it.

 

Cybersecurity Starts With You Tip Sheet

Every time you use the Internet, you face choices related to your security. Friends can be selected, links clicked, websites accessed, and wireless networks can be joined. Your security and the security of the nation depends on making secure online decisions. Making the Internet more safe and secure requires all of us to take responsibility for our own cybersecurity posture.

Identity Theft and Internet Scams Tip SheetPhight the Phish be cyber smart

Today’s technology allows us to connect around the world, to bank and shop online, and to control our televisions, homes, and cars from our smartphones. With this added convenience comes an increased risk of identity theft and Internet scams. #BeCyberSmart on the Internet—at home, at school, at work, on mobile devices, and on the go.

 

Phishing Tip Sheet

Phishing attacks use email or malicious websites to infect your machine with malware and viruses to collect personal and financial information. Cybercriminals attempt to lure users to click on a link or open an attachment that infects their computers, creating vulnerabilities for criminals to use to attack. Phishing emails may appear to come from a real financial institution, e-commerce site, government agency, or any other service, business, or individual. The email may also request personal information such as account numbers, passwords, or Social Security numbers. When users respond with the information or click on a link, attackers use it to access users’ accounts.

Do Your Part #BeCyberSmart

Be Cyber Smart – 2021 Cybersecurity Awareness Month – Week 1

do your partCyber Secure at Work Tip Sheet

Businesses face significant financial loss when a cyber-attack occurs. In 2020, a sharp increase was reported in cyberattacks that target businesses using stolen logins and passwords. Cybercriminals often rely on human error—employees failing to install software patches or clicking on malicious links—to gain access to systems. From the top leadership to the newest employee, cybersecurity requires the vigilance of everyone to keep data, customers, and capital safe and secure. #BeCyberSmart to connect with confidence and support a culture of cybersecurity at your organization.

 

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) Tip Sheet

Have you noticed how often security breaches, stolen data, and identity theft are consistently front-page news these days? Perhaps you, or someone you know, are a victim of cyber criminals who stole personal information, banking credentials, or more. As these incidents become more prevalent, you should consider using multi-factor authentication, also called strong authentication, or two-factor authentication. This technology may already be familiar to you, as many banking and financial institutions require both a password and one of the following to log in: a call, email, or text containing a code. By applying these principles of verification to more of your personal accounts, such as email, social media, and more, you can better secure your information and identity online!
