What School Administrators Absolutely Must Know

Posted by · 1 Comment 

As a school administrator, mentor teacher, school board member or educational leader you are responsible for providing a safe and secure environment within which students and faculty will work. In the past this has involved building details in the physical world; the brick and mortar. In schools today this now includes the online world.

You must have, at least, a basic level of understanding in the areas of Information Security, Acceptable Use Policies, Disaster Recovery and Risk Analysis.

  • Information Security involves keeping private data private and maintaining a reliable network by ensuring that all the components of the network are not compromised
  • Acceptable Use Policies ensure that your end users understand clearly what they are allowed and not allowed to do and provides punishments for violators
  • Disaster Recovery is the process of recovering from a catastrophic loss of data or hardware
  • Risk Analysis is the component that ties all of the three previous sections together by taking a close look at how to evaluate risks
