  • Early dismissal Thursday, May 11th

    Posted by Buffy Fegenbush at 5/8/2017

    This Thursday, May 11th, Berwick High School will hold early dismissal at 11:30 am. A bus will be provided for bus riders at that time.

    Due to the large community following who will be attending the baseball semi-final game in Sulphur and the need for graduation night preparations, it has been determined this is best for safe travels. 

    Commencement ceremonies will begin Thursday night at 7 PM. Weather permitting - no tickets will be needed. In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be held in the gym and each student will receive 10 tickets. 

    Congratulations to our 142 graduates of the Class of 2017 and Go, Panthers!!!

  • What Do You Know About Cybersecurity?

    Posted by Susan Dupre at 4/19/2017 6:00:00 AM

    The Pew Research Center has created a quiz to measure what people know about basic online issues. Before you read any further, I invite you to take the quiz yourself:  http://www.pewinternet.org/quiz/cybersecurity-knowledge/   (By the way, we've talked about all of these issues as part of this CyberSafe blog.)

    This quiz points out how complicated cybersecurity is. Only 20% of the initial 1055 respondents answered more than 8 of the 13 questions correctly, and only 1% received a perfect score. 

    According to the survey's initial results, most people could recognize that a strong password includes upper and lower case letters, numerals, and does not contain a word in the dictionary.  Likewise, most people know that public WiFi--even when it is password protected--is not safe for sensitive activities like banking.

    So, where are the gaps in our knowledge?

    • Only half of the respondents could correctly identify a phishing attack.
    • Nearly 60% did not realize that an internet service provider (ISP) can still see the sites they access when they are using "private browsing" mode.
    • Only 33% knew that the "s" in any URL beginning with "https://" indicates that the traffic on that site is encrypted to protect data.

    Equally concerning, a significant number of respondents answered "not sure" to many questions.  More than 50% of respondents were "not sure" about the private browsing questions and the "https://" question, and 70% or more were not sure what a botnet or a VPN connection could do.

    Is there a difference in responses based on age or education? Yes, those who had higher levels of education did slightly better on the quiz. However, on several questions, users aged 65 and older were just as knowledgeable as those ages 18-29.  In fact, 18-to 29-year olds answered 6 out of 13 questions correctly, while those 65 or older answered 5 out of 13 correct answers.
