Understanding the Issues
Central to the Cyber Security project is the belief that technology is a necessary but insufficient part of the solution. The most important element of any security process is people – users, staff, policy-makers, and other stakeholders. No security system will succeed if its own users do not support it and don’t believe that the IT system as a whole is contributing enough value to their teaching and learning goals to justify maintaining its integrity by accepting the inconveniences required to follow secure practices. No security plan will be properly implemented if the IT staff doesn’t have the resources and skills needed to make it work. No system will be maintained over time if policy makers and stakeholders are not convinced that it is important enough to warrant their attention and absorb a portion of their limited funds. The following tools are designed to help you understand the policies that serve the people’s efforts to meet their district’s educational goals.
