Cyber Safety and Security Deployment
Education should be safe. The student should not be vulnerable to cyber attacks and should be able to focus 100% on maximizing their education. This is why it is so very important that their technology is secure from the threat of cyber attacks. The communication between the teacher and students must appear in an open and efficient manner, but also keep students and teachers free from dangerous things that will break their communication systems.
The internet is the most important place for a student to properly perform research and learn about their subjects. The internet, however, can also be a very dangerous place if proper procedures and protocols are not configured and put into place. Blocking the students from searching potentially harmful material and prohibited topics is crucial. This will keep them safe from learning about many of the dangerous and harmful things that exist in today’s internet. Google search is a powerful tool but it does not filter out what results appear in the search. With the use of firewall content filtering, we are able to create a safe portal between the internet and the student.
We also have the ability to monitor which students are searching for inappropriate content and topics which can be helpful to verify if a student is following proper code of conduct. Software updates to the operating system and software is another very important factor when it comes to cyber safety. These updates provide safety and maintenance patches that keep up with the modern cyber threats, such as phishing, exploitation, malware, etc. The challenge with a computer is that it is designed to allow communication and changes to the system, and many cyber criminals will exploit these to perform malicious and exploitative tasks. These software updates are pushed out regularly and will deny the attacker the ability to perform these malicious acts.
Overall, the use of computers and the internet for educational purposes is very safe as long as a knowledgeable IT company is overseeing and administering the IT infrastructure on a daily basis. This is creates a firm foundation of safety and security that will allow teachers, staff, faculty, parents and students feel assured that there are no dangers involved with the education experience. With a proactive approach, it ensures success!
