East Bloomfield, Union Springs schools lack in data security, state says

Two area schools are not doing an adequate job of protecting data from unauthorized access.

In a series of reports released by Comptroller Tom DiNapoli, both East Bloomfield Central School District and Union Springs Central School District are said to have not adequately safeguarded different components of its IT and/or data systems.

East Bloomfield is said to have not properly protected IT systems and data from unauthorized access or loss. The district had 250 unneeded network user accounts, including two that had administrative permissions.

Union Springs are said to have not adequately safeguarded mobile computing devices.

District officials in both situations agreed to state recommended changes.
