Supporting Catholic Education - eBook Library Donation

The National Catholic Resource Centre Network recently donated $4142.75 to the CEnet Member Overdrive eBook Consortium, ACEN Member collection to support ebook and audiobook resources purchases across the ACEN member dioceses.

The NCRC network, of which a number of CEnet Member Dioceses are participants, recently wound up it's paid association and agreed to disbursement of its remaining funds. It was agreed funds would "be donated to a reputable organisation with quality programs that are relevant to the mission of our network in evangelising the Catholic Church and support teaching and learning by resource and idea sharing across specialist Catholic libraries and connections to collections, services, expertise and knowledge in specific areas".

The ACEN member consortium thanks the NCRCN for the generous donation.

NCRCN members will now be engaging via other technology channels like their NCRCN Google+ forum and Zoom where required. The President of NCRCN, Anne Russell invites and welcomes other Catholic resource centres  to join the NCRCN Google+ forum.

If you know of any Catholic parish or head office resource centres in your diocese that would benefit from sharing/connecting please invite them to join the NCRCN Google+ forum.

Keeping Abreast of Data Breaches

Last week, another large data breach was publicised under the name of ‘The Unattributable "db8151dd" Data Breach’ via Troy Hunt’s well known ‘Have I Been Pwned’ blog. This data set contained almost 90GB of personal information in it across tens of millions of records. Like many of these breaches, this particular one contained numerous catholic.edu.au email addresses.

Since its publication, the origin of this breach has been identified as data originating from the Covve contacts app.

Breaches like this serve as a good reminder to the CEnet community to have automated alerting processes in place for data breaches. Particularly for ones that contain data linked to domain names owned by Member dioceses. 

At CEnet, we leverage Troy Hunt’s HIBP domain notification service and encourage each of our Members to do the same and subscribe to the domain notification service. As an individual, you can do a similar thing for your own email address(es).

If your diocese has yet to leverage this capability, we strongly recommend checking this out. It will enable you and your teams to be the first to know when a breach has been identified so that remedial action can take place.
