Remedying A Crisis

Lea Gralewski Blog

When a crisis hits, there are a lot of varying approaches on the right way to respond.  As a firm that is proud of its expertise in crisis communications, dovetail solutions has successfully navigated these waters since its inception in 2005.

Having worked on crises across an array of industries, one of our successes involved a Colorado school district IT breach. Following parent claims that students were able to access inappropriate material through the district’s web portal, dovetail solutions created a strategy that effectively addressed public concern and made the network more secure for student users.

To do so, we advised that the district host a town hall to directly acknowledge the concerns of parents and administration. During this time, parents were given access to the portal so they could become familiar with its features. The town hall created an opportunity for an open and transparent forum addressing the risks of Internet access for students. From this discussion, the district was able to determine what changes needed to be made to secure the portal and restrict web access standards. The outcome established the network as a secure and credible source for student learning that is still used today.
