Delaware Valley School District reviews data breach prevention

This is somewhat encouraging to read. Katie Collins reports:

A few policies currently in place that are being studied and possibly updated was the focus of the Delaware Valley School District’s February workshop.

The Director of Curriculum and Technology Dr. Gina Vives reported that the greatest change amongst the policies was that of the “data breach policy” regarding health information. In an attempt at securing technology devices there are firewalls and encryption is used to monitor the district’s internet. Every 90 days passwords are also changed. Personal health information, she said is especially secured.
