Don’t let your higher ed institute get schooled by cyber criminals

Colleges and universities must protect their intellectual property and student information from cyber criminals and advanced persistent threat actors. Educational institutions have many stakeholders beyond their student populations, to include faculty, alumni, governing and oversight organizations, and outside vendors. In addition to delivering a quality education, these institutions also have other functions, such as athletics, health and safety, retail operations, and dining. This combination of broad stakeholders and services creates a large attack surface that malicious hackers can exploit to obtain sensitive data. Many higher education institutions conduct research and development activities and possess valuable intellectual property that is often the target of foreign government hackers. Because of the volume of sensitive data that educational institutions process and possess they are subject to numerous data privacy and consumer protections regulations, such as the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
