School corporation looks to protect itself from cyber attack

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – The West Lafayette Community School Corporation is considering taking more steps to protect itself from a potential cyber attack.

Board members heard information Wednesday night about a possible insurance policy that would protect details like student and faculty information.

“We’ve taken a lot of steps to limit anything like from happening, but you’re always at risk, like the Target issue. Although we’re not a vendor like that, we do have student information, we have personnel information, we have social security numbers, and a lot of our things are electronic anymore,” said Ross Sloat, WLCSC business manager.

A recommendation will be made for the cyber insurance policy at the meeting next month.

Board members also learned the need for new restrooms at Cumberland Elementary, as well as more storage for maintenance equipment.
