As technology advances, so does the need for enhanced digital security. The district improved school security by implementing solutions ranging from closed caption TV, building access control, and visitor management systems with intercom capability.
With more and more students connected to the internet, the need for enhanced cybersecurity was necessary. The Verona IT department implemented different technologies to keep students and staff safe from cyber attacks. The IT Department configured its network to allow incoming connections to only approved internet traffic. With a local
firewall system in place, all traffic is scanned for malware and any potential cyber threats. The implementation of a web filtering system monitors and blocks inappropriate and potentially malicious websites. Student and staff data are saved on the cloud on the secured Google’s G-Suite for Education servers.
Even though data are on Google’s secured servers, the district implemented a cloud filtering solutions specific to G-Suite for Education to monitor, scan and protect its users from phishing and cyber-attacks.
Although it is not possible to block all
cyber-attacks, the Verona IT department is doing its best to further expand the technology in our district and maintain a safe learning environment for our students.
