Cyber safety is the safe and responsible use of information and communication technology. It is not just about keeping information safe and secure, but also about being responsible with that information, being respectful of other people online, and practicing good ‘netiquette’ (internet etiquette). As information infrastructure and Internet became bigger and more complex, it became critical to maintain systems functional and alert to security issues. Though the system administration tasks have become easier in recent years, school administrators need to be more updated on the systems and network security. In recent years, all systems are exposed to Internet; hence there is increased challenge in maintaining and protecting them from the attackers/hackers. Schools play a key role in promoting internet safety. Schools are primarily responsible for keeping systems/ computers/ network devices secure and functional. It is important to keep the information as secure as we keep the systems and network devices in the organization.
As the whole planet is experiencing a different situation we are compelled to change the method of education system. We at Excelsior English School have an organized IT team which educates cyber safety, piracy policies, Cyber Crime etc. We conduct seminars and talks by eminent professionals like Lawyers (Cyber law), Police officials from Cyber Crime etc.
Our faculty has attended multiple webinars. Some are listed below:
- Data Privacy in Online Learning – ISEA
