With news of ransom ware late last week hitting big systems and corporations around the Globe, our team investigated the possible impact on our district and servers.
It’s been advised to our team from the Ministry to implement a series of updates on our servers around the district to ensure the latest vulnerabilities have been patched. Additionally, we’ve taken precautions to ensure our datacentre & school firewalls are also running the versions of Wildfire (built in anti virus) & security policies to protect against attacks like this.
As always, we encourage all users to regularly update their passwords for their personal accounts, email and online resources. Additionally, never click on links from senders you do not recognize. We encourage our staff to keep their antivirus updated – and to inform our tech team of any concerns they may have.
