Education industry professionals across the country are experiencing a growing need for specialized information technology support that will enable them to deliver consistent, quality service around the clock. Tightening budgetary constraints mean educational institutions must find ways to do more with less; however, there is no margin for error when it comes to protecting student information and maintaining regulatory compliance (e.g., FERPA, HIPAA).
That's where Integrated Computer Solutions comes in. ICS can help educational institutions:
• Protect student data
• Protect intellectual property and research
• Increase service levels
• Reduce costs
As more complex information security threats are discovered daily, education systems are challenged to find IT security support that is a business-enabler and force-multiplier.
Education Technical Security Case Studies: Duval Case Study | St. John's Case Study
These case studies show ICS' successful past performance history within the education sector. In each case, ICS was contacted by school districts that needed to ensure the safety the students and faculty within their public school systems, to include their personal information within the system’s network. They also needed to ensure that the district’s network and web applications were safe from potential hackers.
The districts engaged ICS to perform technical security assessment in order to provide objective evaluations of IT security vulnerabilities along with detailed strategic plans to secure those weaknesses.
• Web Application Assessments
• External Penetration Tests
• Network Penetration Testing
• Vulnerability Assessments
• Ethical Hacking
In each example, ICS was able to identify specific points of weakness that compromised the cyber-security of the school districts' networks. ICS provided actionable insights that have allowed the school districts to defend their weak areas, ensure regulatory compliance, and save countless resources in the process.
