This interview with NewNet 66 representatives was recorded during the Oklahoma State Superintendent’s Annual Leadership Conference on July 7, 2006 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. School districts face an increasingly complex array of threats to the integrity of their computer networks from global sources. Rural schools, which do not have the financial and personnel resources of larger districts, are particularly challenged to protect servers and client computers on their networks from malware and hacker threats proliferating on a daily basis. InterMapper is a software solution used by NewNet66 to monitor managed switches on school networks to see the threats and bad guys inside and outside school networks. Mike Pennell of NewNet66, an Inter-Local Consortium of Oklahoma K-12 School Districts, discusses ways districts are confronting these threats and tools that can aid in the fight.
