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 and sensitive IP that criminals and other attackers covet, yet must still promote the spirit of academic access and openness. The good news is despite these challenges and industry-wide skills shortages, you can take steps to take back control.
What the Education Sector Needs to Do
Implement strong supply chain risk management and vendor risk assessment processes.
Deploy an effective vulnerability management program covering all technology platforms.
Implement strong access control and security awareness to help prevent phishing attacks.
Deploy technologies that provide real-time protection against malware, including ransomware.
Reduce detection time, particularly on endpoints, as the number of connected devices grows.
Conduct table top scenarios and crisis management exercises to test incident response processes.
Earn an "A" for More Than Effort.
