Learning from Schools

Universities have had major problems with their computers and networks being infected with viruses. Busineses might be able to learn some things, in how to protect their own networks, by looking at what solutions Universities have found.
The Washington Post writes In the fall of 2003, colleges and universities nationwide were forced to cut off Internet access to tens of thousands of new and returning students whose computers were infected with viruses and worms. This year, move-in day at schools across the Washington region was a relative non-event, thanks in large part to stringent new security precautions that helped quarantine infected PCs before they even had a chance to spread their disease.
