IT managers plagued by security breaches
A survey conducted by Panda security discovered
common concerns among IT administrators
when it comes to protecting staff and students
from malware, such as:
38% of schools report removing viruses or
malware from IT systems a few times a week,
and 21% do this daily.
90% percent of schools have installed
anti-virus and/or anti-malware on computers, but nearly 25% fail to
use firewalls, block high-risk Web sites, or employ user authentication.
Social media is a top concern for schools, but the stringency of school
policy varies greatly: 29% of schools allow students unlimited access
to social media sites, while 32% deny students access altogether.
