Cybersecurity Awareness on Campus The best way to counter cyber threats to institutions of higher education is, appropriately enough, through education. One reason colleges and universities are uniquely susceptible to cyberattacks is the sheer size of their networks. Large student bodies, multiple departments, and the administrative staff operating on interconnected digital systems provide a wide range of attack vectors for cyber criminals to exploit. This is why your institution's defenses need to be distributed. You can accomplish that with a good cybersecurity awareness training program. When cybersecurity awareness permeates every level of an institution, it is much more difficult for cybercriminals to use social engineering and other human based attack vectors and break into secure networks and systems. In this report, we’ll explore the most urgent vulnerabilities that are putting institutions of higher education at risk, as well as the most effective ways to address those vulnerabilities. Although the current state of cybersecurity in higher education is concerning, there are plenty of measures institutions can take to protect themselves – and it all begins with their people.
