                The Surge of Cyber Threats: What Higher Education Needs to Know

                Learn how universities and colleges can achieve strong security postures by balancing mission with risk

                For higher education institutions built on a culture of open networks that encourage collaboration and transparency, the challenge of addressing cybersecurity is intensifying.

                Colleges and universities have several challenges unique to their environments, such as decentralization, politics, and the varied nature of constituents. Each of these nuances makes strengthening your security posture more difficult.

                But cybersecurity is an area that requires greater focus given your data's appeal to hackers and their increasing attempts to break into your networks to get it.

                Ransomware and cyber-espionage are two threats that are seeing greater activity in higher education. This paper discusses both threats, reviews real-world incidents caused by them, and provides guidance to help you navigate the nuances of the academic environment to better protect your institution.
