• Information on Dallas ISD data security incident

    The Dallas Independent School District recently received notice of a data security incident involving the district’s electronic records that may affect former and current students, alumni, parents, and district employees.

    The confidentiality, privacy, and security of information in our care is one our highest priorities.  We take this matter very seriously and have invested significant resources to protect sensitive data. Despite our efforts, the district is now one of a growing number of public and private organizations experiencing cyberattacks.

    Federal law enforcement authorities have been contacted. At this time, it appears the affected information has been contained and that none of it has been shared or sold. However, we cannot be 100 percent certain until additional forensic analysis is completed.

    The district’s IT team, assisted by forensic consultants, has addressed specific vulnerabilities that were exploited during this event and will continue efforts to augment security going forward. 

    We regret any inconvenience this incident may have caused and believe it is our responsibility to inform the public that we are taking steps to notify individuals whose records have been impacted.

    We are committed to transparency and will continue to share updates with you, as they are available. Please check back on this website for the latest information.

    If you have questions, would like to sign up for free credit monitoring, or feel you may be impacted by this incident, please call (855) 651-2605 or visit dallasisd.kroll.com.
