The Four County School Boards Association would like to extend a warm thank you to Jeff Ginsberg

 EduTech Area Network Manager

 for his humorous and enlightening presentation at our January General Membership dinner meeting at Club 86.   

Jeff focused on how to be proactive and aware of your online activity both as an individual and a board member.  Various examples were given to demonstrate how your digital presence can be compromised as well as what impact it can have as a board member.  Tips and strategies were given on how to increase security to not only protect your data but also that of your district as well.
