School districts today must find the right balance between protecting their networks and allowing students to use the kinds of Web 2.0 tools that are important to improving learning and developing new skills. This delicate balance requires a blend of the right policies and technologies that can address each school’s needs.
IT directors have to address a growing list of internet threats that can affect student safety, compromise networks, and expose district officials to legal liability. Yet the nature of these threats is constantly evolving, as crooks and hackers get more sophisticated in their attempts to steal sensitive student or school data.
This Webinar will present an overview of the challenges of Web 2.0 security, the importance of being proactive and creating a Network and Information Security Plan, how to strengthen your defenses against the threats, and how one district is addressing the issues effectively and cost effectively.
