Cybersecurity in Education

With the continued increase of cyberthreats against the education sector, having the right IAM solution is more important than ever.

Though cybersecurity threats aren’t new for the education sector, attacks such as ransomware and phishing are on the rise due to the increase in remote and online learning and the rapid adoption of cloud services. Something new and better must be done to enact cybersecurity defenses and develop approaches to safeguard institutions, their data, and their users (the staff, faculty and students).

In this whitepaper, we look at the cybersecurity threats the education sector faces and highlight new security solutions, like different methods for multi-factor authentication (MFA). 

You will learn about: 

  • The education sector's characteristics making it susceptible to cyberattacks
  • How elevated security protections without improving convenience will fail 
  • Best practices for cybersecurity preparedness
