Weaving a Secure Web Around Education: A Guide to Technology Standards and Security (2003)


This Guide was written to provide guidance to local and state education agencies about the development, maintenance, and standardization of effective websites. The Guide offers a detailed examination of the steps that can be taken to secure an education organization’s Internet node (connection point) and the network that sends information from computer to computer within the organization. It describes appropriate publishing standards and content for websites at various levels of the education environment. It also addresses usability guidelines as they relate to federal and state regulations for accessibility, privacy rights, and copyright regulations. Appendices include a description of a local area network, sample policies that could be used by districts or state departments of education, access options for education organizations, and a glossary of relevant terms and definitions.
