Keeping your Distance Learning Environment Secure

New ways to help protect distance learning from escalating threats

As distance learning becomes more widely adopted, educational institutions are exploring new ways to protect their distance learning environments from an ever-increasing array of threats—ransomware, malware, inappropriate content, and more.

Distance learning may seem like a soft target to hackers, always on the lookout for new opportunities. Students may be younger and less experienced with technology. Students and teachers may be working from home with limited security in place. Educational institutions may not have the funding or IT personnel to address security adequately. And while most schools are aware of security threats, many are still at an early stage of addressing them.
