  5. T4L - 2010 • 2010 is the second year of the new T4L rollout • The 2010 program has been separated into two Phases; Phase 1 is for Hunter/Central Coast, Northern Sydney and Western NSW regions only with Phase 2 for schools in other regions.  • Phase 1 has commenced • Phase 2 will be in semester 2

  6. T4L - 2010 • P5/P6 schools received their entire rollout in 2009 and should (under the current plans) receive no more until 2013 • Sans Souci and Matraville Soldiers Settlement PS were part of a platform change program and received their full allocation up front. • All other Sydney Region schools to receive their next ¼ allocation in Semester 2 this year • Schools should consider their T4L order for 2010. What needs replacement? Your Server?

  7. T4L – 2010 • T4L (Hardware) Website: • http://tinyurl.com/t4lwebsite • Existing Acer Notebooks: • 802.11n 5GHz Wireless adapter now available • $35 each • This allows Acer laptops to connect to DER Wireless in High Schools

  8. Backing Up your School Server • Backup is an important part of any server setup. It provides the necessary resources to recover lost files which may result from user error up to complete server crashes. Backup and restore systems are a part of any recovery plan. • In Planning for backup requirements you should consider providing at least three times the possible data capacity of your server to allow for backup file history. • Schools should not rely on a single Backup Solution to backup critical files but use a range of solutions within their setup. • Part of the Backup Strategy should include an Off-Site component where some part of the backup is stored away from the school for essential files.

  9. Backing Up your School Server • Note: • There is no automatic Offsite Regional Backup. • Backup is a school issue.

  10. Option 1: External USB HDD (x 3) • Each week the active drive is manually removed and the next drive connected. • Minimum of three drives is required. Small – Medium Primary School Large Primary/High School Seagate Freeagent 1.5TB 3.5” External Drive (with external Power supply) $178 each • Seagate Freeagent Go 500G 2.5” External Drive • (powered from USB port) • $178 each

  11. Option 2: Network Attached Storage • Network Attached Storage (NAS) consists of one or more hard disk drives in a chassis that attaches to the network. Units containing multiple drives can be set up as RAID 1 (2 drives, mirrored) or RAID 5 (Minimum 3 drives) thus providing additional data protection in the event of drive failure. • NAS units would be best placed in a secure location in a different building from where the servers are located. • Note: • NAS does not provide offsite capabilities. • Security on files stored on the NAS devices is provided by your Active Directory (Windows Server) • NAS devices can also be used to store multimedia files such as photos etc.

  12. Option 2: NAS Device • Buffalo TeraStation Pro II TS-H4.0 - NAS - 4 TB • (3 Tb with RAID 5) • $1298 • Buffalo TeraStation III - 8 TB NAS with Gigabit Ethernet B • (6 TB with RAID 5) • $3689 • QNAP TS-809 NAS with Gigabit Ethernet (8 x 3.5” Bays) • $4028 with 8 x 1 TB Drives (7 TB with RAID 5) • $4636 with 8 x 1.5 TB Drives (10.5 TB with Raid 5) • $5676 with 8 x 2 TB Drives (14 TB with RAID 5)

  13. USB Drives vs NAS External USB Drives NAS Devices + No swapping of drives required + RAID 5 offers some additional redundancy + Provides for storage of multimedia files + Active Directory Security applies. + NAS can be placed in secure location away from server + Larger Capacities available + Can also be used to provide storage for other files eg Photos - Does not provide Offsite backup • + Cheaper option • + Provides OFFSITE backup • - Should be replaced each year. • - Must be Manually swapped each week. • - No Security on files • - Backup device is placed in Same room as server. • - Limited in Size

  14. Uninterruptable Power Supplies • UPS protect servers from power outages • Power outages can lead to server hardware and software issues • APC UPS’s come with Powerchute software to shut servers down. • APC UPS are available through DELL.

  15. E-waste –Reverse garbage Reverse Garbage picks up Ewaste from schools and not-for-profits for free. http://reversetheitguy.wordpress.com/you-donate/

  34. Term 1 2010 ICT Update • T4L Rollout:server installs, backup & UPS recommendations • Interactive Classrooms Project • Discretionary Purchases of ICT equipment • Password security • Digital Education Revolution • New DET portal and other DET links • Sydney Region ICT initiatives • BlogED • ActivStudio

  35. Improving DET Password Security • Many teachers in NSW have had their Portal ID taken over by students • So they can watch YouTube and access other sites normally blocked for students • This occurred because many teachers have an easily guessable “Secret Question” • In an email from State Office Data 4/12/09, it was announced that THREE secret questions would be implemented

  36. Improving DET Password Security • The setting of the three secret questions must be instigated by the USER. They will not be set until YOU choose to set them • Go to My Profile in your Portal to set them • The first two questions are choices from a list of preset questions. The third can be a user-definable question • Only 15% of teachers have set their three Qs all others still only have the one question set

  37. Improving DET Password Security • Remember, if anyone gets into your DET Account, they can email as you, get your bank, home address and phone details and even apply for leave on your behalf • As a teacher, the student can access SBSR and adjust their and other students’ reports • The DET Portal now hosts many corporate applications – eg. ERN, EMU, SMU, BlogEd – All are compromised by lax password security

  38. Improving DET Password Security • It is always better to never have to resort to “Secret Questions” to unlock your account(s) • Make your passwords for each account and webservice: Complex, Unique AND Memorable • Here are strategies you might want to consider: • http://tinyurl.com/DETpasswordtips(Intranet) • http://tinyurl.com/betterpasswords • Tell your staff they must keep their DET Account secure, do not give your details to anyone, including IT support staff!

  39. Student Password Security • Generic passwords should be avoided. • For example, the password “k” for all Kindergarten students. • Generic passwords can lead to unidentifiable Internet use, the potential for cyber bullying and unauthorised email access.

  40. eMail Phishing Scams • Memorandum in inPrincipal 19 Feb 2010 • Phishing is a fact of Internet use • People from around the world try to get you to provide your username / password for various services such as banks, credit unions, facebook etc. • Email arrives asking you to verify your details via a link to a real-looking, but bogus website • These sites will NEVER email you asking for this detail – do NOT fall for it. • Forward the phishing email to abuse@det.nsw.edu.au

  41. Email, Spam and Phishing Many school staff are complaining about Spam and Phishing emails arriving in their mailbox Spam & Phishing are a fact of life and we must be aware The vast majority of email arriving at NSW DET’s mail server is NOT legitimate email We only see a trickle of Spam that the filters miss If you receive Spam, you can forward it to “abuse” or just delete it. Teach your staff that no-one will legitimately email them asking for personal details – this is Phishing. Advice for Dealing with Spam can be found at this DET Intranet site –http://tinyurl.com/detspam
