The education sector – from special programs, elementary, and secondary education to higher education at the university level – deals with many challenges in today’s internet of things (IoT) world. One of the top issues for higher education IT leaders is information security, according to EDUCAUSE.

Chief information security officers and administrators are juggling challenge after challenge while trying to keep their campuses safe from cyber criminals. The concerns range from phishing, cloud security, and identity and access management, to governance over data security and unsecure personal devices.

No matter how big or how small you are, hackers see you as a target. The risk of credit card theft and data breaches for education are significant and can adversely impact your school’s stability and success.

At stake are not just the mitigation costs, but also the potential for lost brand loyalty, lost students and consumer confidence, community backlash, and court-ordered compensation. Netsurion’s BranchSDO and EventTracker solutions bring a comprehensive, unique, affordable set of cybersecurity protection that will also help you get compliant and stay compliant.
