Security situation for universities:

  • Higher education institutions are often targeted by phishing emails and social engineering attacks. Cybercriminals attempt to trick staff and students into revealing sensitive information such as login credentials, personal data, or financial information.

  • Data Breaches: Higher education institutions store a significant amount of sensitive data, including student records, research data, and financial information. Data breaches can occur due to inadequate security measures, weak passwords, insider threats, or targeted attacks, leading to the exposure of personal and confidential information.

  • But you don’t have funds for investment and the operation of new security measures. So, you must live with it – or do you?
