Tips for educational organizations on how to defend against online threats
by Scott Campbell - Security Threats & Trends Analyst for ThreatTrack Security - Tuesday, 17 September 2013.
Issue: Protecting students’ grades and other personal data is a paramount objective for any educational organization. A data breach could cause significant harm—financial and otherwise—for a school district that fails to keep students safe.

Solution: A security solution should be able to track what’s happening in both directions, and alert IT administrators of any usual movement. A bi-directional firewall protects against both inbound and outbound threats and should provide optional rules for applications, ports and system services. In addition, Web filtering features should automatically block malicious URLs and phishing Web sites that users may stumble upon.
