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.
