Education Cybersecurity Challenges

Expensive Cyber Analysts

Financial institutions struggle to recruit and retain the staff with the requisite cybersecurity expertise to detect and defend their infrastructure against advanced cyber attacks.

Costly Compliance Requirements

Most institutions struggle to keep pace with regulatory requirements that impact their compliance with GLBA, FERPA, PII, PCI, and other compliance frameworks.

Real-Time Detection & Response

Most financial institutions struggle to stay up-to-date on threats in their environment and implement real-time detection and response, allowing adversaries the necessary dwell time to execute a successful cyber attack.

Expanded Attack Surface

Financial institutions are a major targets for adversaries due to their vast number of connections spread across various locations and access to sensitive student information.

IT Misconfigurations

IT misconfigurations are the top cause of data breaches, accounting for 43% of all breaches. Misconfigured systems can leave education institutions exposed to attack, data theft and other security incidents.

Social Engineering / Phishing Attacks

Financial institutions are increasingly being targeted in phishing attacks by cybercriminals looking to steal student information.
