Hackers will always be drawn to the education industry. The sheer size of the sector, as well as the potential for large financial gain, data theft, and espionage, makes it an attractive target for cybercriminals. And everybody, from students to staff, faculty members, and third-party providers, are potential targets.
Cyber Security in Education
Protecting the confidentiality of sensitive information is just as critical as offering a high standard of education in today’s evolving threat scenario. Inability to take proper precautions could result in the theft of vital research and the revealing of personal and financial information.
With 3,934 weekly breaches, Australia’s education sector has the fourth greatest number of cybersecurity breaches a week, up 17% over the first half of 2021. The main issue for educational institutions is to manage valuable data and resources while reducing current and future cybersecurity risks.
