Improving Network Security

Question:What resources do you recommend for helping improve our district’s Internet security policies and actual security status?

The IT Guy says:
The Center for Internet Security is a nonprofit group dedicated to helping organizations (including schools) improve security controls and minimize risks to data and users. On its “Benchmarks/Tools” page, CIS offers a variety of benchmarks for a variety of security products designed to “harden” them against attacks. Use these benchmarks to guage the level of security for your installed network hardware and software programs, and consider at least meeting these standards on all installations.
