Protect yourself the NSA way

The NSA has a very useful document on how to protect your network. While some of the recommendations are a bit extreme for a school environment -- such as the number of passwords one has to have before reusing one -- the general recommendations are excellent. Many of the steps are free. I especially liked the section that provides information on how to setup your firewall to block out-going bad traffic. The file is in PDF format.
