20 May Protecting Pupils Online
Are you a teacher concerned by the growing risks presented when your students connect online?
In today’s increasingly digital world, it’s a struggle keeping up to ensure we are fully protecting our children when connected.
And yet, so many educational centres don’t look into improving their network security.
Government guidance across the UK, highlights the importance of safeguarding pupils from harmful and inappropriate online material (Department for Education, 2018).
Unsurprisingly, this has led to a notable increase in pressure on teachers and staff alike, to keep students safe whilst they browse.
Because if we can’t protect them, who can?
KBR provide the solutions.
We all know that protecting students from dangerous online content can be a frustrating and constant battle.
So, what are the solutions that can help and better yet, put an end to it?
It’s not complicated, over technical, or overly expensive.
No, it’s combination of 3 simple things that will leave you feeling rest assured and confident when your pupils connect.
The first answer is this, limiting your web applications.
By implementing a thorough web filtering solution, you are preventing harmful content from appearing online and ensuring your children stay safe when wirelessly connected.
KBR’s web filtering solutions keep your students safe from hackers that attempt to reach and potentially expose them, to harmful content.
When pupils open a web-page for the first time, they run the risk of being exposed to dangerous content, or opening malware or spyware.
Our web filters stop children accessing dangerous websites by blocking access to their content.
