Say goodbye to USBs
To enhance cybersecurity, Dallas ISD will be rolling out policies restricting and disabling the use of removable storage devices (or USB drives) on district devices in favor of more secure, district-managed cloud storage options.
Starting on Friday, March 3, Information Technology will disable the use of USB storage devices on all computers issued to staff. The use of these storage options has been restricted on all devices issued to students since October. Mice, keyboards, 10-key, and other non-storage USB devices will continue to work without issues.
The district understands that storage and sharing of documents and files is often necessary and encourages team members to use cloud storage options in the district’s OneDrive and Google Drive. To ease the transition to the available cloud storage solutions, IT has created a step-by-step guide and a training in dallasisd.csod.com/LMS.
