The education sector is a prime target for cybercriminals – and it’s crucial that every organisation is as prepared as possible to deal with incoming attacks.
Cyber crime is an acknowledged threat across all sectors, but education is consistently recognised as one of the most likely to experience a cyber attack.
Institutions are uniquely vulnerable due to the large amounts of sensitive personal information stored – including student and faculty records and financial records.
Typically there can be large numbers of people accessing systems, with many working from home on personal devices; making networks larger, more open and more difficult to protect without specialist help.
In recent months there’s been an increase in cyber attacks targeting the UK education sector, with confidential data from more than a dozen schools leaked online.
For many hackers, education networks are an easy target for ransomware attack, making it absolutely essential that you have the highest levels of defence in place.
Thankfully, there is a solution.
