The New Threat Intelligence — For Higher Education

Educational institutions must look beyond traditional defenses to protect against advanced attacks, data breach and fraud.

While financial services, retail, and government organizations generate most of the media headlines, higher education is high on the list for reported security incidents, according to recent research by The Open Security Foundation. Online attacks against educational institutions that incur security incidents and data breaches often mirror the types of losses experienced by the private sector:

  • Direct financial costs of incident response, IT forensics, remediation, and services provided to victims

  • Theft of research and intellectual property

  • Loss of reputation with students, alumni, faculty and the greater community.
