Smryna School District invited WilmU Information Security Alliance (ISA) members Ashley Jensen and Janice Paulson to present on “The Dangers of Social Media” at “I Love Smyrna School District Day” on Saturday, February 26th, 2011. The *ISA spent last summer researching various social media and developed a presentation and set of best practices. The presentation was first offered to the general public in a free workshop at Wilmington University in August of 2010. Officials in Smyrna School District heard about the presentation and asked the ISA to offer three sessions during the day long “I Love Smyrna School District Day” event.
The community response to the event itself impressed Wilmington University CNS Program Chair Mark Hufe, “I’ve seen events like this at individual schools, but never at the district level. The turnout was truly amazing. The place was jammed – a great community event”
Following the presentations, audience members were given the opportunity to get help with their Facebook privacy settings. The school provided several laptops and ISA members walked folks through adjusting their settings.
* The ISA is a student based organization with well over 100 members consisting of undergraduate and graduate students, alum and instructors.
