Karen and All,


during the school board meetings break I was drawn into a conversation with Derek Araje, unbeknownst to
me he has a reputation.
He voiced his concerns about GAFE and IC, but more to the point he admitted that he could obtain or get
access to any students records in the district because of our lack of security protocols.I doubted his claims
and reassured him that unless the human element of security protocol (the user) was careless with their login
and password he would not be able to do as he said....he was adamant that he could access the system
without that information. I reminded him that doing so is illegal...at this point the conversation turned ugly and
I excused myself from his rantings.
I am concerned that his rantings will pollute/influence those persons who are skeptical of any technology
used in the district. Please let me know if there is anyway I can be part of a positive solution.

As a stakeholder, I would expect that his input could be valuable if he were in a position of wanting to assist
the district. If he truly feels that we have a vulnerability, I would be interested in hearing what it is, so that we
can better protect our students and staff.
It is my belief that without compromised credentials, as Dewayne mentioned, or advanced cracking skills,
that what Mr. Araje suggests is not possible on GAFE, IC, or our Windows Domain.
Thanks,

Thanks for giving us a heads up about this. I don't believe that this is accurate, however, it is important that
you passed this on. Sorry you had
