Schools Actually Have Very Complex Cyber Security Needs, ContentKeeper Keeps Them Protected
When you think about industries with very complex cyber security needs, you probably don’t think about elementary, middle and high schools. Actually, K-12 schools offer some of the most complex challenges for IT and cyber security professionals.
In the K-12 environment CIPA compliance and web security are the top priority but that isn’t as easy as it sounds. Students, teachers and administrators are often accessing networks and the internet from a variety of devices. Many schools have BYOD programs, allowing students and faculty to bring their own devices in to use during the school day. Other schools are fortunate enough to have 1:1 programs, but students are curious and when devices go home they don’t always come back as healthy as when they left.
When you throw into the mix, the need for good content filtering and the curious students that want to try “hacking” you are presented with a recipe that could be cause for disaster. Adding to this already simmering pile of headache is the fact that many school districts across America are very slim in the IT department.
What school districts need is one place to go that can handle all of the intricacies of the K-12 school network and environment. ContentKeeper Technologies is that place.
