Help for Higher Education from Proofpoint
In the face of advanced cyber threats, a people-centric approach is essential.
Learning has evolved. So has security
Open networks, email, cloud apps—these are the tools of modern education. Faculty, researchers, industry partners and students now generate, exchange and access a wealth of sensitive information through these channels on a daily basis. Educational institutions struggle to address the speed, volume and complexity of today’s evolving cyber threats, while also being under intense pressure to protect privacy under FERPA, HIPAA and other rules.
