Firewall Hardening for the K-12 Environment

In this session we will talk about building a robust firewall configuration in the context of a regional WAN. We will look at an active Palo Alto firewall from the perspective of a school district in the IU13 WAN, but the same concepts will also apply to other network topologies and firewalls. We will begin with a basic firewall configuration and examine ways to better prevent intrusion from the Internet or within the WAN, while maximizing the accessibility of public-facing services.
