Protect the network, use the network to protect students
Your schools use a growing amount of networked information and devices as an essential part of teaching and administration. Research on the Internet, laptops in class, distance learning, and online homework are some of the official technologies that your students use.
Unofficially, this list extends to mobile phones (with cameras), digital music and video players, blogs, instant messaging, social networking sites, and networked or online gaming.

According to the American Community Survey, tele-commuting jumped 79 percent between 2005 and 2012. More than 9 million American workers did their jobs exclusively from home in 2010, according to the U.S. Census, and 30 million work from home at least once a week. And TechCast at George Washington University estimates as many as 30 percent of U.S. private sector workers could be working from home by 2019. For sales professionals, that proportion is certainly higher.
