Virtual iron walls for the internet in the education sector

The internet has become the new normal for many sectors, especially the educational one. As a result, education has changed dramatically, with the rise of e-learning whereby teaching is done remotely and on digital platforms

Research suggests that online learning has proved to increase the retention of information and take less time, meaning the changes coronavirus has caused might be here to stay. Even though many educational institutions have gone back to normal, they are still relying on the internet and e-learning. With all this happening, many countries have started imposing regulations for internet usage for educational institutions, such as the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), in order to keep both students and teachers safe and help them have the best experience without being worried about anything but learning.

Schools or libraries that are eligible to receive discounts for telecommunications, internet access or internal connections through the E-rate program (Universal Service Program for Schools and Libraries) must certify they have an internet safety policy that blocks or filters access to pictures that are obscene, child pornography, or harmful to minors. While CIPA is helping to prevent students from accessing inappropriate content, that isn’t the only threat students or staff can face.

There are many cyberthreats that can harm both students and the educational institution itself, such as malware, ransomware, phishing, botnets, and many others. And here comes our service: SafeDNS provides an “all in one” service.
