Reducing Data Loss and Insider Risks in Higher Education

Institutions in higher education have a lot of valuable data. This makes them prime targets for cybercriminals and highly susceptible to data compromise.

There are a lot of ways they lose data. Ransomware and other cyberattacks often get the headlines. But threat actors also use tactics like credential theft to get inside environments. And malicious, compromised and careless insiders often expose data, too. All of these risks are compounded because institutions are faced with limited budgets, staffing issues and other challenges.
