Meeting roundup

Hinsdale High School District 86 Board

Among other action April 23, board members:

• listened to an update on cybersecurity from Keith Bockwoldt, chief information officer. He outlined steps the district has taken to improve security, including awareness training, the use of new storage infrastructure that is resistant to ransomware and regular password changes. The next steps for the district will be implementing a next-generation firewall, reviewing email security solutions and requiring two-factor authentication.

“This is something we’re continually working on,” Bockwoldt said. “We can’t let our guard down.”

• heard an update from board member Keith Chval on the search for a new assistant superintendent for academics to replace Carol Baker, whose contract is not being renewed. Two individuals are being considered for the position and a final candidate is expected to be on the agenda for board approval May 14.
