Educational institutions face unique challenges that make them especially vulnerable to hacker attacks and exfiltration of both personal information and intellectual property.

Live and Learn

The education sector handles massive amounts of personal information that criminals covet, yet still must promote the spirit of academic access and openness. The good news is despite these limitations, which also may include security skills shortages, you can take steps to take back control.

What the Education Sector Needs to Do

Implement strong access control and security awareness to help prevent phishing attacks.
Deploy technologies that provide real-time protection against malware, including ransomware.
Identify and patch vulnerabilities across databases, networks and applications (including mobile).
Reduce detection time, particularly on endpoints, as the number of connected devices grows.
