Model Audit: Missouri Auditor Summary of Cyber Aware School Audit Findings

Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway has released a list of the top five data security risks identified in Missouri schools. The concerns were identified through the Cyber Aware School audit initiative, which was designed to increase safeguards against unauthorized access to student records and information. This was accomplished by analyzing school data protection practices, identifying areas of concern and making recommendations to improve the security of information in public schools across the state. The report examines how well school districts complied with data security standards and best practices. There were five district audits completed (Orchard Farm R-V,  Park Hill, Cape Girardeau, Waynesville, and Boonville R-1) and an audit of the state education agency.
