State auditor launches cyber-security audit of schools

State auditor Nicole Galloway has launched a new cyber security audit of Missouri schools.

The cyber-aware school audits are designed to find ways to improve the security of students’ personal information.

Galloway said the kind of student and family information on file includes things like health records and bank account information.

She said it’s a growing challenge to keep the data safe.

“As technology changes, as we interact with technology in different ways we need to adapt. This needs to be top of mind as we change and adapt with technology we need to make sure that people’s information is secure right along with it,” said Galloway.

The Boonville school district in Cooper Co. and the Waynesville school district in Pulaski County are two of the first Mid-Missouri districts to be involved in the audit. Others will be added next year.
