LCSD identifies cyber incident

As we communicated on Friday, April 7, 2023, Liberty was made aware of a potential cyber incident on our school network systems. Our network has numerous security measures already in place, but upon hearing of the potential threat, we took further actions to bolster that security. Our initial investigation discovered no breaches.

Upon further investigation this week, we did discover one confirmed cyber incident, and several attempts to access our system. The compromised server included network logins and passwords.

Working with Sullivan County BOCES, we are continuing to investigate network usage and will be performing any remediation deemed necessary. Immediate actions are:

  • Disabling the Guest Wi-Fi network
  • Constructing a new password-protected Wi-Fi system for guests. Administrators will provide passwords upon request, and passwords will be changed regularly.
  • Instituting a forced password change for students and staff
  • Adjusting Wi-Fi networks to ensure personal devices do not have access without permission 
  • Re-evaluating and updating our procedures and long-term security planning.

We will advise as more information is obtained throughout this investigation
