While at work we depend on and expect our company technology resources to protect us and keep us safe online. We may assume that all sorts of protections are in place to ensure viruses, malware, and digital attackers are kept at bay and away from our workstations and mobile devices. At home we may feel less protected (unless you have a tech savvy household member) and as such be somewhat more prudent with your technology habits.
In fact, at Infinite Campus, we have multiple hardware and software systems, and several employees in our IT department that are working full time to protect and monitor our network from hundreds of attacks every day. With all the resources and people it is still a game of whack-a-mole to keep the bad guys locked out while letting the good traffic in and out. Whether you are at home or at work, it is imperative that you practice safe and secure use of all the technology you use. As parents, it’s also important to help our children make safe technology decisions.
Safe computing practices include a combination of how you physically or technically protect your computer by using software and security settings, as well as the actions you take while on line. You need attention to both to really make a difference.
