Galloway’s K-12 cybersecurity initiative, 2 years later | St. Louis …

A cybersecurity initiative launched two years ago to protect public schools in Missouri from hackers is getting good marks from educators. 

It was launched in September 2015 by State Auditor Nicole Galloway and has become a permanent part of the auditor’s office’s practices.

Local education officials for the most part say it’s working, though attempts to hack into school records appear to be on the rise. C.J. Huff is an advisor for the Missouri Center for Education Safety, which is part of the state school board association. He says one thing they’re working on is limiting the number of employees that can access private information.

“You know, who has access to particular information that could be sensitive, and what’s the protocol for being able to access that information so it’s just not open to everybody, but having some checks and balances,” Huff said.

Galloway concurs, stating that many of the challenges they face center on personal

Patriotic Russians may have staged cyber attacks on own initiative: Putin

By Denis Pinchuk

(Reuters) – President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that patriotic Russian hackers may have staged cyber attacks against countries that had strained relations with Moscow on their own initiative, but said the Russian state had never been involved in such hacking.

Putin, speaking to international media at an economic forum in St Petersburg, was answering a question about allegations Moscow might try to interfere in this year’s German elections.

Moscow’s attitude towards cyber crime is under intense scrutiny after U.S. intelligence officials alleged that Russian hackers had tried to help Republican Donald Trump win the White House, something Russia has flatly denied.

Hannibal High School starts initiative to combat cyber bullying – Herald

HANNIBAL, Mo. — Survey responses from 337 Hannibal High School students stood out to family and consumer science teacher Linda Stinson and the nearly 15 students in her chapter of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America.

Seventy-one percent of respondents said cyberbullying is a problem in the school, and 32 percent said they have been the victim of cyberbullying. Even more concerning was that 15 percent said they felt like hurting themselves after people posted derogatory comments about them on social media.
