Protecting Educational Organisations

Educational organisations increasingly use digital resources for their educational programs, and it becomes crucial to provide secure and safe access to the information.

The cyber threat profile of schools and universities has changed dramatically, and these days these organisations need to deploy proactive detection and response measure to safeguard their staff, students and research as well as to protect their reputation.

Education Sector Cyber Security Challenges

Universities have to maintain large, highly heterogenous environments with limited budgets and IT resources

To effectively safeguard students learning activities, universities needs to be able to monitor students’ online activity, at the same time respecting and protecting their privacy

Students normally have multiple ways to interact with universities systems and resources, and it is not always straightforward to pinpoint activities conducted by any particular individual

Universities need to be able to find a balance between providing open educational environment where students can ethically conduct research and get access to required data, while at the same time clearly identifying malicious activity and unethical behaviour

Universities needs to effectively deal with threats such as improper use (e.g. cryptocurrency mining), research rights protection and illegal access to protection and copywriter material

With almost 64% of all malware attacks

education industry is the most affected by cyber crime

87% of educational institutes

have experienced at least 1 Cyberattack

85% of schools and universities

demand additional cyber security funding
