Education INDUSTRY

Cybersecurity Solutions For The Education Sector

The education sector is increasingly reliant on technology, which has created new cybersecurity risks. Schools and universities are now entirely managed through computer systems and networks. Both teachers and students depend on the accessibility and the security of these systems to store and share sensitive information. In order to protect the integrity of educational institutions and their degrees, cybersecurity has become a top priority. Our solutions are designed to help the education sector identify their primary risks and provide adapted solutions to their unique challenges.

Phishing Attacks

These attacks are particularly successful in the education sector, with over 90% of phishing emails being opened by employees. In 2021, hackers diverted the payroll of various American universities using a derived form of phishing called business email compromise (BEC), successfully stealing millions of dollars.

Ransomware Attacks

Ransomware attacks targeting the education sector have increased by 400% in 2021. These attacks have caused significant disruptions, with some institutions being forced to pay large sums of money to regain access to their data. 70% of organizations that were targeted by ransomware reported paying the ransom.

Data Breaches

The number of data breaches in the education sector increased significantly between 2020 and 2021 due to the transition to e-learning during the pandemic. The average cost of a data breach in the education sector was $4.5 million.
