Strong policies, a commitment to ongoing training of all key stakeholders and up-to-date digital security technology are all central elements of protecting critical campus information from data breaches.
The need for robust cybersecurity is at the top of many organizations priority lists. As more and more of our daily lives are moved online, it is essential to be as safe as possible when it comes to digital records, personal information, and more. Hackers are constantly at work with the goal of stealing valuable data, and only organizations that are committed to investing in cybersecurity will be able to stay one step ahead of the game.
While the hacking activities have always been evident for businesses, it is now an issue for institutions of higher learning as well. Higher education institutions are vulnerable to losing personal information of students, faculty, and staff, as well as valuable intellectual property such as patents awarded to professors and students.
