Education Safety is presenting three more workshops.
The workshop will bring you information on high-quality,
up-to-date, school safety planning.

Be Aware: "Ransomeware"
“Ransomeware” is a hacker's dream and an IT
professional’s nightmare. Recently, a number of law
enforcement agencies in the US have been targeted, and
even the FBI and Homeland Security could not recover
their files absent the departments paying the ransom to
the hackers. Are schools a target? Could you afford to
loose all the digital records, including possibly your
back-ups? A little due diligence will go a long way.
