During the recent DeSoto Parish School Board meeting on August 1, Superintendent Clay Corley called on Supervisor of Technology Lisa Register to explain the recent cybersecurity attacks on Louisiana schools and what DeSoto had decided to do to prevent an occurrence of this type. It was noted that supervisors and principals were excused from attending the board meeting since they were all working on this dilemma. Board members that were absent included Neil Henderson, Mark Ross, and Coday Johnston.

DeSoto Parish Schools have taken a proactive approach to the recent cybersecurity attacks on Louisiana schools that prompted a recent emergency declaration by Governor Edwards.

Superintendent Clay Corley weighed in on the issue. “We feel that by being proactive we can potentially stay one step ahead of an attack on our system. I feel like as a district, we are adequately prepared for a potential attack, but realize that we can always do more to better protect our system.”
