Hackers, making good on a threat, published contact information for 20,000 FBI employees Monday afternoon, just one day after posting similar data on almost 10,000 Department of Homeland Security employees.
Your Contact Information really should only contain information that you want public. Family and “real” friends have other ways to get you home address, cell phone, Instant Message screen name and land line phone. One option is to use your news organization’s address and phone number. Note that you can also edit your email address to be your work email.
I’ve found that it is so much easier for me to have all of my students’ contact information on one form rather than using the emergency contact forms we keep in our classroom. I keep this right behind my desk, and it was so nice to have everything right there in one place.
I keep this form with my students’ contact information, because I’ve learned how important it is to document every time I make a phone call. I was really surprised at how many times I referred to it during the year.
