Welcome to our latest In Brief newsletter. Recently, we’ve loved connecting with lots of you at events across the motu including NZSTA and NASDAP conferences. And if we haven’t had the pleasure, here’s the opportunity to get up to date with news from the N4L team.

This term we share a story about Eskdale School, introduce you to our newest member of the Education and Engagement team, and share a few updates including some partner news.

Happy reading!

Heads up
Keep up to date with network updates
Our Alerts page is a quick and easy way to check on current network outages or security advisories. We add a new alert as soon as we’re aware of an issue, and continue to update it as we learn more. It’s been recently updated to include categories such as unplanned outages, product updates, scheduled maintenance and more to make it easier to find the info you need. Head to the website to check it out.

Email Protection
Our Email Protection solution is available to help protect kura from an increasing number of email-based cyber threats. It’s fully funded and provides an enhanced level of email security. Find out more here.

Cyber Skills Aotearoa
Help your ākonga improve their cyber security and online safety skills through courses, activities and resources offered by our friends at Grok Academy and their Cyber Skills Aotearoa programme. They also have an online competition where students can test their cyber security skills starting October 24th. All content is available in both English and te reo Māori. You can learn more about the programme here.
