Securing Your Learning Management System
Many people forget to check on an imperative issue: the security of their online learning management system. The internet is brimming with threats of intrusion, viruses, worms, spyware, and numerous others. You can’t afford the risk of refraining from taking the necessary steps to make sure your system is fully protected.
Particularly with sensitive and classified information, such as proprietary company training or information, it is essential to ensure that your learning management system not only provides server-side software encryption, but also safeguards the user-side management interfaces.
So—does your learning management system provide SSL encryption? Where is your application hosted, in-house or externally? And how are you protecting it—with an anti-virus, anti-spyware software, data-encryption software, firewalls? All of these are great to have. And it really is better to be safe than sorry.
