Are you prepared for the latest cybersecurity challenges?
Get your team ready to make a triple play against email, web and cloud-native threats. Recent headlines have revealed a new league of cyber threats exploding on a global scale—and the risk to schools, colleges, and universities is only going to grow.
Today’s hackers are making tremendous profit through ransomware by stealing and holding onto data in exchange for funds to release it. Student and faculty records, research data, and credit card information hold high value. Beyond the monetary impact, an attack on a school district or university can compromise its ability to teach or conduct assessments and can damage a school’s reputation which can be difficult to recover from. Furthermore, if personal information is exposed, institutions may be subject to penalties under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), including the loss of federal funding.
